Abstract

A novel k-type organic metal based on 4,5,-cyclohexeno-TTP (where TTP is bis-fused tetrathiafulvalene, TTF), see Figure, is reported. The synthesis, structure, and electrical properties are described. It is suggested that, following this demonstration of a TTF-based organic metal without a chalcogeno-based substituent, further CH-TTP salts should be investigated for conductivity and superconductivity.
