Characterization of the oxidation products of styryl-substituted terthiophenes and sexithiophenes using electronic absorption spectroscopy and time-dependent DFT.

Abstract

The electronic absorption spectra of a series of alkoxy-styryl substituted terthiophenes, their corresponding sexithiophenes, and the oxidation products of both have been measured. The terthiophenes studied sigma-dimerize to sexithiophenes during the oxidation process and there is clear evidence of sexithiophene radical cations, dications, and pi-dimers in… (More)
