Core-substituted naphthalenediimides (NDIs) are not often used in functional materials despite excellent properties because the harsh conditions used for their synthesis are incompatible with structural diversity. Here, we report rapid access to blue, red, and yellow NDIs under mild conditions with tolerance toward the additional presence of pertinent functional groups.
