A new family of π-extended tetrathiafulvalene (exTTF) donor-acceptor chromophores has been synthesized by [2 + 2] cycloaddition of TCNE with exTTF-substituted alkynes and subsequent cycloreversion. X-ray data and theoretical calculations, performed at the B3LYP/6-31G** level, show that the new chromophores exhibit highly distorted nonplanar molecular(More)
Graphene-based materials (GBMs), with graphene, their most known member, at the head, constitute a large family of materials which has aroused the interest of scientists working in different research fields such as chemistry, physics, or materials science, to mention a few, arguably as no other material before. In this review, we offer a general overview on(More)
The reactivity of several carbon nanoforms (CNFs), single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs), multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and graphene, has been investigated through a combination of arylation and click chemistry Cu(I)-mediated azide-alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) reactions. The approach is based on the incorporation of electroactive π-extended(More)
A new molecular wire suitably functionalized with sulfur atoms at terminal positions and endowed with a central redox active TTF unit has been synthesized and inserted within two atomic-sized Au electrodes; electrical transport measurements have been performed in STM and MCBJ set-ups in a liquid environment and reveal conductance values around 10(-2) G0 for(More)
The synthesis and electrochemical properties of spiromethanofullerenes 1-6 are described. The syntheses were achieved via the diazomethane route, and the regioisomeric distribution of bis-adducts 3 was determined by (1)H NMR, UV-vis, and HPLC analysis. The electrochemistry of these compounds in dichloromethane exhibits, besides several reversible(More)
Chiral graphene quantum dots were prepared by acidic exfoliation and oxidation of graphite, dialysis, and esterification with enantiomerically pure (R) or (S)-2-phenyl-1-propanol. Circular dichroism studies support the formation of supramolecular aggregates with pyrene molecules, where a transfer of chirality occurs from the chiral graphene quantum dots to(More)
