A novel redox-active thiacalix[4]arene-tetrathiafulvalene assembly 5 was carried out through triethyl phosphite-mediated cross-coupling of the corresponding two 1,3-dithiole-2-(thi)ones (3 and 4). The structure of thiacalix[4]arene-tetrathiafulvalene assembly 5 was identified by X-ray diffraction analysis. Meanwhile, the preliminary electrochemical properties of 5 was investigated by cyclic voltammetry (CV) and two one-electron quasi-reversible waves with redox potentials are observed.
