Multi-Stage Redox Systems Based on Dicationic P-Containing Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
synthesis of unprecedented electron-acceptors based on dicationic P-containing PAHs (Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons) where two phosphoniums are connected through various PAHs backbones. The impact of pi-extension on both the optical and redox properties is investigated using a joint experimental/theoretical approach.
Finally, (spectro)-electrochemical studies prove that these
compounds possess three redox states and EPR studies confirms the in situ formation of an organic radical.
