Coronene, which is the smallest D6h-symmetric polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon, attracts particular attention as a basic component of electronic materials because it is the smallest fragment of graphene. However, carrier generation by physical methods, such as photo- or electric field-effect, has barely been studied, primarily because of the poor π-conduction pathway in pristine coronene solid. In this work we have developed unprecedented π-stacking columns of cationic coronene molecules by electrochemical hole-doping with polyoxometallate dianions. The face-to-face π-π interactions as well as the partially charged state lead to electrical conductivity at room temperature of up to 3 S cm-1, which is more than 10 orders of magnitude higher than that of pristine coronene solid. Additionally, the robust π-π interactions strongly suppress the in-plane rotation of the coronene molecules, which has allowed the first direct observation of the static Jahn-Teller distortion of cationic coronene molecules. Conducting coronene: An unprecedented π-stacking columns of cationic coronene molecules by electrochemical hole-doping with polyoxometallate dianions is developed. The face-to-face π-π interactions as well as the partially charged state lead to electrical conductivity at room temperature of up to 3 S cm-1, which is more than 10 orders of magnitude higher than that of pristine coronene solid.
