A series of bridged triarylamines, which constitute a new class of heterohelicenes, have been synthesized using a simple three-step procedure. These compounds are shown to be highly luminescent chromophores and are capable of being oxidized. The solid-state structures of these helicenes show a tendency for π-stacking interactions into an overall zigzag motif.
