Abstract

Biphenylene is an antiaromatic compound that has a strained butadiene skeleton that joins two benzene rings. Various methods for synthesizing the biphenylene core have been developed. In addition, the reactivity of biphenylene has attracted much attention because C–C bonds of biphenylene can be cleaved by various organometallic species. Furthermore, the biphenylene motif not only acts as a spacer in a variety of functional molecules, but also serves as a backbone for catalysts and ligands. This minireview summarizes how to construct the biphenylene structure, how to react biphenylene, and how to use the biphenylene skeleton in functional materials.
