Abstract: Recent progress in the design, synthesis and characterization of chalcogen-nitrogen π-heterocycles, mostly 1,2,5-chalcogenadiazoles (chalcogen: S, Se and Te) and their fused derivatives, possessing positive electron affinity is discussed together with their use in preparation of charge-transfer complexes and radical-anion salts—candidate building blocks of molecule-based electrical and magnetic functional materials.
Keywords: organic electron acceptors; radical-anion salts; charge-transfer complexes
