Synthesis of 2,7-disubstituted tetramethoxypyrene-based neutral biradical donors is reported. The biradicals were characterized by EPR, UV-vis, CV, SQUID, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction, and their optical, electrochemical, and structural properties were compared and discussed. The experimental results are well supported by DFT calculations. Systematic tuning of magnetic exchange interactions was achieved by varying the radical moieties.
