Supramolecular chemistry of π-extended analogues of TTF and carbon nanostructures

Abstract

The shrewd combination of complementary electroactive molecular fragments through weak, non-covalent forces can be exploited to construct stimuli-responsive assemblies or to achieve self-ordered arrays of electron donor and/or acceptor moieties to be utilized in optoelectronic devices. Among the electron donors, tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) has been particularly fashionable in this field. Comparatively, the supramolecular chemistry of its π-extended analogues was severely underdeveloped. Herein we present a summary of some recent results in the exploration of the non-covalent chemistry of π-extended analogues of tetrathiafulvalene.
