Substituent and counterion effects on the formation of π-dimer dications of end-capped heptathienoacenes

Author affiliations

Abstract

We have investigated the impact of the functionalization and the chemical nature of counterions on the π-dimer dications formation in two end-capped heptathienoacenes. Radical cations of an α-substituted heptathienoacene with triisopropylsilyl groups do not π-dimerize, while those of an α,β-substituted heptathienoacene with four n-decyl side chains show a high propensity toward π-dimerization, increased by PF6 counterions.
