A cadmium TCNQ-based semiconductor with versatile binding modes and non-integer redox states. Academic Article uri icon


  • The 3-D coordination polymer with the basic formula Cd2(TCNQ)3.5(H2O)2 is the first instance of the coexistence of the bridging modes 2, 3 and 4 for TCNQ in one network. Single crystal measurements revealed the compound to be a good semiconductor with a room temperature conductivity of 5.8 10(-3) S cm(-1).
