Abstract

Difuryl- and dithienymethene anions are potential chelating ligands for metals and are shown to exhibit marked redox activity, undergoing facile one-electron oxidation to form stable, neutral radicals. The stability of the anions and the ease of formation of the neutral radicals are related to the extent of conjugation, the substituent pattern, and the nature of the heteroatom.
