A novel one-dimensional structure involving µ 4 -TCNQ ligands and quadruply bonded dimolybdenum units (TCNQ = 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane) Academic Article uri icon


  • Reaction of Mo2(O2CCF3)4with TCNQ (TCNQ = 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane) in xylenes yields [Mo2(O2CCF3)4(TCNQ)0.5·m-xylene]2·[Mo2(O2CCF3)4·(m-xylene)] 1, an unprecedented one-dimensional μ4-TCNQ polymer, which is characterized by X-ray crystallography.
