Abstract

A series of metal (Hg, Pt, Ru) bis(alkynyl-tetrathiafulvalene) complexes have been investigated to study the electronic interplay between the metal and the tetrathiafulvalene (TTF), as well as between the two peripheral TTF electrophores along the organometallic bridge. Cyclic voltammetry experiments, together with spectro-electrochemical investigations, have shown the electronic effect of the metal center through the linker on redox properties of the TTF, as well as the influence of the length of the conjugated organic linker. These data show that the degree of coupling can be modulated from no coupling with mercury to appreciable electronic coupling between different electrophores with ruthenium. View Full-Text
