Although tetrathiafulvalene derivatives (TTFs) have been used as the redox-active unit in a lot of ion responsive receptors, only a few such examples of TTF carboxylic acids have been reported, especially about the responses to neutral organic molecules. In this work, electrochemical and spectral properties of dimethylthio-tetrathiafulvalene monocarboxylic acid (DMT-TTFCOOH) have been studied by both experimental methods and quantum chemical calculations. A square mechanism of proton transfer… CONTINUE READING
