© 2015 American Chemical Society. This article presents a novel asymmetrical functionalization strategy for the construction of dipolar molecules via efficient regioselective functionalization along the Z-axis of pyrene at both the 1,3- and 6,8-positions. Three asymmetrical ly substituted 1,3-diphenyl-6,8-R-disubsituted pyrenes were fully characterized by X-ray crystallography, photophysical properties, electrochemistry, and density functional theory calculations.
