4-[(Quinolin-4-yl)ethynyl]benzoic acid underwent a cycloreaction with tetraphenylcyclopentadienone to give the hexa(hetero)arylbenzene- 1-(quinolin-4-yl)-2-(4-benzoic acid)-3,4,5,6-tetraphenylbenzene which was N-methylated and finally deprotonated to give the title compound. The molecule adopts a propeller-shaped configuration in which the benzoate ring as well as the phenyl ring adjacent to the quinolinium substituent display non-isochronous resonance frequencies, respectively, due to a hindered rotation. Although the molecule formally belongs to the class of pseudo-cross-conjugated heterocyclic mesomeric betaines, the propeller-shape causes a charge distribution of cross-conjugated systems. DFT-calculations (frontier orbital profiles, geometries) have been carried out.
