Unravelling the Key Driving Forces of the Spin Transition in π-Dimers of Spiro-biphenalenyl-Based Radicals.


Spiro-biphenalenyl (SBP) boron radicals constitute an important family of molecules for the preparation of functional organic materials. The building blocks of several SBP-based crystals are π-dimers of these radicals, in which two phenalenyl (PLY) rings face each other and the other two PLYs point away from the superimposed PLYs. The dimers of ethyl-SBP… (More)
