Star-shaped nanographenes are large monodisperse polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons that extend in size beyond the nanometer and have shown a lot of promise in a wide range of applications including electronics, energy conversion and sensing. Herein we report a new family of giant star-shaped N-doped nanographenes with diameters up to 6.5 nm. Furthermore, the high solubility of this SNG family in neutral organic solvents at room temperature allowed a complete structural, optoelectronic and electrochemical characterisation, which together with charge transport studies illustrate their n-type semiconducting character.
