Syntheses and Properties of Thiophene-inserted Dendralenes with Redox-active 1,3-Dithiol-2-ylidene Units
Novel dendralene type cross-conjugate molecules based on 1,3-dithiol-2-ylidene units with thiophene have been prepared. The conjugation in the oxidized stage is mainly through the thiophene core, while the cross-conjugated nature is observed in the neutral state. The CT complex of <B>2a</B> with TCNQF<SUB>4</SUB> shows moderated electrical conductivity of 10<SUP>−4</SUP> S cm<SUP>−1</SUP>.
