Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


The synthesis of rigid tetrathiafulvalenophanes containing one or two tetrathiafulvalene units is presented, together with a stepwise convergent synthesis of macrocyclic bis-tetrathiafulvalenes via several open dimeric tetrathiafulvalenes. These systems were investigated by cyclic voltammetry and by X-ray crystallography.
