Abstract

Electrochemical oxidation of a catechol-fused tetraselenafulvalene (TSF) derivative unexpectedly gave its <i>ortho</i>-benzoquinone analogue, in contrast to the tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) system that afforded a hydrogen-bonded organic conductor. The obtained donor–acceptor dyad showed amphoteric redox character, a small HOMO–LUMO gap, effective intermolecular interactions, and NIR absorption.
