Worthwhile goals for the synthesis of conducting materials are compounds 1–3, which contain the tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) framework. Compound 1 and a bis(methylsulfanyl) analogue have now been synthesized. Their oxidation behavior resembles that of the title compound, whose cation-radical salts are superconductors. The TTF core of these systems is essentially planar, and the outer sulfur atoms play a role in the crystallographic network.
