Reversible conversion between a pleated oligo-tetrathiafulvalene radical foldamer and folded donor–acceptor [3]pseudorotaxane under redox conditions

Author affiliations

Abstract

Linear tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) oligomers were synthesized, which could not only form a pleated TTF˙+ radical cation foldamer under oxidation conditions, but also interlocked with CBPQT4+ to form folded donor–acceptor [3]pseudorotaxane in the neutral state of TTF. Moreover, switchable transformation between these two folded supramolecular structures was achieved under the alternative regulation of the redox states of TTF units.
