Abstract

Electrocrystallization of the (S,S,S,S) enantiomer of tetramethyl-bis(ethylenedithio)-tetrathiafulvalene donor 1 in the presence of the dianionic hexanuclear rhenium (III) cluster [Re6S6Cl8]2− affords a crystalline radical cation salt formulated as [(S)-1]2·Re6S6Cl8, in which the methyl substituents of the donors adopt an unprecedented all-axial conformation. A complex set of intermolecular TTF···TTF and cluster···TTF interactions sustain an original tridimensional architecture. View Full-Text
