Abstract

[GRAPHICS] The synthesis, solution redox behavior, EPR, and intramolecular charge transfer properties of novel donor- acceptor diads of TTF-sigma -A type (TTF = substituted tetrathiafulvalene, sigma = saturated spacer, A = polynitrofluorene acceptor) are reported. The HOMO-LUMO gap for compound 6 is as small as 0.3 eV, and spectroelectrochemical experiments reveal its electrochromic behavior in the near-IR region.
