We report the synthesis and characterization of a series of arene-borazine hybrids called borazatruxenes. These molecules are BN-isosteres of truxene whereby the central benzene core has been replaced by a borazine ring. The straightforward three step synthesis, stability and their chiroptical and electronic properties recommend them as new scaffolds for BN-carbon hybrid materials. Computational studies at DFT level, closely matching the experimental data, provided insights in the electronic structure of these molecules.
