Abstract

A solvent free oxidative coupling reaction of 3-hexylthiophene (3HT) within a nanocavity is reported. It is found that 3HT can be encapsulated in nanocavities larger than 1 nm, which corresponds to the size of the molecule. In this case, the side reaction at the 4-position in 3HT is regulated.
