Using the first organic spin ladder, a dithiophene-tetrathiafulvalene salt ((DT-TTF)2[Au(mnt)2] (mnt = maleonitriledithiolate)), as a model compound, two approaches to obtain new spin-ladder magnetic systems are described. Modification of the acceptor complex produces new organic spin ladders (structure and electron paramagnetic resonance spin susceptibility shown in Figure).
