Bis-fused tetrathiafulvalenes with mono- and dicarboxylic acids, 2-{5-(1,3-dithiol-2-ylidene)-[1,3]dithiolo[4,5-d][1,3]dithiol-2-ylidene}-1, 3-dithiole-4-carboxylic acid (1) and 2-{5-(1,3-dithiol-2-ylidene)-[1,3] dithiolo[4,5-d][1,3]dithiol-2-ylidene}-1,3-dithiole-4,5-dicarboxylic acid (2) have been synthesized. The electronic structure of 1 and 2 was examined from their optical absorption spectra and using density-functional calculations.
