- Trifluoroacetic acid (TFA);
- Toluenesulphonic acid (TSA)
Conductivity measurements demonstrate that in the presence of toluenesulphonic acid, 1:1 mixtures of mesotetrakis(3,5-di-t-butyl-4-hydroxyphenyl)porphyrin and its two-electron oxidation product give materials whose degree of semiconductivity is dependent on the toluenesulphonic acid concentration in the solid.
