An Original Redox-Responsive Ligand Based on a Extended TTF Framework
The synthesis of the first π-extended tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) ligand featuring a furanoquinonoid spacer and pyridyl functional groups is described. This compound shows an unprecedented electrochemical sensing behavior and excellent coordinating properties toward selected divalent metal ions. Solid-state structures of the free ligand and its Ni(II)Cl2 complex are described. © 2007 American Chemical Society.
