Synthesis and Properties of New Donors Linked Directly with 2 or 3 Tetrathiafulvalene Units
Synthesis and properties of new donors in which two or three ?TF frameworks are linked with some dihedral angles to form extended pi-conjugated systems are described. Complexation of these TTF derivatives with DDQ and iodine affords moderately conductive charge transfer complexes. Cyclic voltammetry indicates that the electron-ability of TTF-trimers is reduced by comparison of that of TTF-monomer but is slightly enhanced comparing with that of TTF-dimers.
