Two new maleimide derivatives have been synthesized, prone to self-assemble and react with graphene as dienophiles. Both compounds bear a long alkyl chain on the carbon-carbon double bond position 3. The maleimide 1 bears a second alkyl chain at the nitrogen, while in compound 2, three maleimide functionalities are linked to a triethynylbenzene core. View Full-Text
