Abstract

A new donor-acceplor diad compound 6 with the donor dihydro-TTF and acceptor quinone functions in very close proximity has been prepared mid charachterized. The X-ray structure shows an interesting stacking pattern and electrochemically it undergoes two reversible oxidations and two reversible reductions. An ESR signal has been observed due to thermal population of the radical anion/radical cation state.
