Twisted two-dimensional aromatic frameworks have been prepared by overcrowding the nodes with bulky and rigid substituents. The highly distorted aromatic framework with alternating out-of-plane substituents results in diminished interlayer interactions that favor the exfoliation and dispersion of individual layers in organic media.
