A purely organic mixed-valence high-spin species in which the existence of an electron transfer process has been clearly established by NIR spectroscopy is reported. Since magnetic coupling and electron transfer are by no means independent of each other the opportunity to study the first organic material to exhibit both phenomena is of particular interest.
