Abstract

A report is presented on results from the author's initial investigations of the synthesis, structure, and physical characterization of charge transfer solids derived from these cations and the TCNQ- and C3[C(CN)2]3 - polycyanoanions. The solid-state motifs of the acceptor anion stacks and the molecular stoichiometry of the complexes are governed by the spatial orientation of charges in interactions and electronic properties of these materials. The charge transfer complexes described clearly demonstrate that the three-dimensional solid-state structure can be rationally controlled by designed electrostatic interactions between polycations of known dimensionality and planar acceptor anions. The stoichiometry of charge transfer complexes and the degree of charge on molecular components can be rationally controlled by the charge and size (length) of the polycation, as well as by the electrochemical parameters during electrocrystallization of these complexes.
