New charge transfer salts of two organic π-donors of the tetrathiafulvalene type with the paramagnetic [Cr(NCS)6]3- anion

Abstract : The electrochemical combination of the paramagnetic anion [Cr(NCS)6]3- with the organic π-donors bis(ethylenedithio)tetrathiafulvalene (ET) and 4,5-bis(2-hydroxyethylthio) -4′,5′-ethylenedithiotetrathiafulvalene (DHET-EDTTTF) leads to two new radical cation salts, namely (ET)4 [Cr(NCS 6]·PhCN 1 and (DHET-EDTTTF)2 (NEt4)[Cr(NCS)6] 2. Both have been characterized by X-ray crystallography, magnetic and resistivity measurements. The structure of 1 consists of alternating inorganic layers generated by the anions and organic layers in which the PhCN molecules are inserted; the organic sub-lattice is built up from four different ET units, three of them with a charge distribution of +1, the fourth being neutral. The organic sub-lattice of 2 contains a centrosymmetric [(DHET-EDTTTF•)2]2+ dimer, in which the overlap mode is of the eclipsed type. Conductivity measurements indicate that compounds 1 and 2 are semiconductors with room temperature conductivities of 1.4 × 10-2 and 6.1 × 10-5 S cm-1 and activation energies of 0.24 and 0.23 eV, in 1 and 2, respectively. For both salts, magnetic measurements indicate (i) that the organic and inorganic parts are magnetically independent, and (ii) that the organic units are antiferromagnetically coupled.
