Abstract

A ferrocene derivative having directly connected naphthalenediimide moieties has been synthesized. The stacking-destacking structures of the naphthalenediimides can be switched in response to redox stimuli by associating with the pivoting motion of ferrocene. The conformation and the electronic structure of naphthalenediimides are elucidated quantitatively in each electron-transfer state. The composite exhibited n-type semiconducting behavior.
