The Sonogashira coupling reaction of the diiodide 6 of 1,2-[4,5-bis(butylthio)tetrathiafulvalenyl]ethyne with 4,5-bis(ethynyl)-4’,5’-bis(butylthio)tetrathiafulvanene 5 produced the corresponding tris(tetrathiafulvaleno)hexadehydro[12]annulene 1 in moderate yield. The [12]annulene 1 exhibits multi-redox behavior and solvatochromism in the neutral state.
