Intra- and Intermolecular Charge Transfer in Aggregates of Tetrathiafulvalene-Triphenylmethyl Radical Derivatives in Solution


An extensive investigation of aggregation phenomena occurring in solution for a family of electron donor–acceptor derivatives, based on polychlorotriphenylmethyl radicals (PTM) linked via a vinylene-bridge to tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) units, is presented. A large set of temperature and/or concentration dependent optical absorption and electron spin resonance (ESR) spectra in a solution of dyads bearing different number of electrons and/or with a hydrogenated PTM residue offer reliable information on the formation of homo dimers and mixed valence dimers. The results shed light on the reciprocal influence of intramolecular electron transfer (IET) within a dyad and the intermolecular charge transfer (CT) occurring in a dimer between the TTF residues and are rationalized based on a theoretical model that describes both interactions.
