Abstract

We present the first report of a compact, planar and low-energy-gap molecule based on a π-conjugated bimetal system comprising a tetrathiooxalate (tto) skeleton. The observed low HOMO–LUMO energy gap (1.19 eV) is attributed to its donor–acceptor–donor (D–A–D) nature because the tto skeleton acts as an electron acceptor as well as a tiny and noninnocent bridging moiety.
