Electron deficient compounds are extensively studied in the field of molecular materials. Compared to the simplest electron acceptors, multi-cyano heterocyclics performed excellent properties in electron-withdrawing ability, thermal stability, etc. This review provides a survey of the synthesis and modifications of two kinds of multi-cyano heterocyclics and their applications.
