Importance of alkyl chain-length on the self-assembly of new Ni(qdt)2 complexes and charge transport properties

Author affiliations

Abstract

A series of ionic complexes composed with ([Ni(qdt)2]2−) and alkyl substituted asymmetric viologen derivatives (AV+) as cations have been synthesized and characterized. A slight change in the length of the alkyl chain of AV+ alters the cation–anion packing and leads to different charge transport properties of these complexes. Here, we establish a structure–property relationship of Ni(qdt)2 complexes by structurally modifying the cations.
