An organic switch: An open-shell dyad, consisting of an electron acceptor perchlorotriphenylmethyl radical unit linked to an electron π-donor tetrathiafulvalene unit through a vinylene π-bridge, was synthesized (see picture). The self-assembly of the dyad in solution induced by its intramolecular electron transfer was studied.
