Abstract

original image

The radical anion M•⊖ and the radical cation M•⊕ have so far both been detected for few molecules M. Methylthio-substituted π-systems such as (1) represent a new type of such molecules. Comparison of the calculated charge distributions for M, M•⊖, and M•⊕ with the experimental spin densities ρ and ρ is of topical interest.
