Bistropylium ions linked by heterocyclic moieties were synthesized to measure their reduction potentials of -0.47 ~ -0.42 V vs. SCE. Charge transfer complexes between these bistropylium ions and radical anion of TCNQ showed conductivities of 7.7 X 10-4 ~ 7.7 X 10-5 Scm-1, indicating that they can be classified as semiconductors.
