4,4’,7,7’-Tetrabutyl-5,5’,6,6’-tetracyano-2,2’-bis(benzo-1,3-dithiol-2-ylidene) (3-Bu) was prepared and mixed with 4,5-bis(2,6-dimethylphenoxy)phthalonitrile (4), which was treated with lithium alkoxide at 120 °C to produce diphthalocyanine linked with a TTF unit. The structure of the product was determined by NMR and MALDI-TOF-MS. The optical and electrochemical properties were examined by UV-vis spectra and cyclic voltammetry.
