The direct synthesis of six-fold symmetric hexaphenylbenzenes with multiple photochromic dithienylethene units via a cobalt-catalyzed cyclotrimerization is reported. This approach allows for six photochromic units to be held in proximity with a well-defined spatial separation without affecting the photochromic properties of each unit.
