Abstract

The development of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons characterized by the addition of dichalcogen bridged groups at their peri-positions as novel electron donors of a non-TTF type is described. These compounds have been chiefly designed by structural modifications of the prototypical tetrathiotetracene; that is, by replacement of the skeletal aromatic rings and of the bridged chalcogen atoms as well as by the introduction of alkyl groups. Most of them are superior electron donors able to form highly conducting molecular complexes.
