Abstract: Heteroatom-embedded buckybowl molecules provide a fundamental molecular framework that has potential applications in various research fields. However, selective introduction of heteroatoms into buckybowls is challenging, and thus studies investigating the effect of introduced heteroatoms have been limited. Here we report the synthesis of pyridine- fused azacorannulene molecules. The influence of nitrogen atoms introduced into the peripheral positions on the structural, electronic, and optical properties is discussed.
