Tetrathiafulvalene radical cation salts are organic-based conductors where an increase of the dimensionality of the conducting process leads to a stabilization of the metallic state. Donor molecules of the type shown in the Figure should increase this dimensionality by extending the π conjugation of the system. The synthesis of the new donor and the electrical properties of its salts are presented.
