A fully conjugated ‘dimeric’ BEDT-TTF system;[l] synthesis, crystal structure, and electrical properties


  • Financial support by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft is gratefully acknowledged.


Communication: The low dimentionality of the charge-carrier transport in conducting BEDT-TTF radical cation salts usually results in a metal-insulator transition. The extended BEDT-TTF derivative presented here contains two TTF moieties in full π conjugation and is the result of research aimed at increasing the dimentionaly of the system. The synthesis and electrochemical properties of the new doner are reported.
