A new synthetic route toward the synthesis of benzo[b]phospholes- and benzo[b]siloles-fused pyrenes using a transition metal-catalyzed C-H bond activation is described. The compounds were fully characterized including X-ray diffraction. A combined experimental and theoretical study shows that both the heteroatom and the substitution pattern impact the optical and redox properties.
