Tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) as the prototypical electron donor for solid-state (electronics) applications is converted to the unusual cation-radical salt, TTF+* CB- (where CB- is the non-coordinating closo-dodecamethylcarboranate), for crystallographic and spectral analyses. Near-IR studies establish the spontaneous self-association of TTF+* to form the diamagnetic [TTF+,TTF+] dication and to also undergo the equally rapid cross-association with its parent donor to form the mixed-valence [TTF… CONTINUE READING
