Highly conducting coordination polymers based on infinite M(4,4'-bpy) chains flanked by regular stacks of non-integer TCNQ radicals. Academic Article uri icon


  • All coordinated: Highly conducting coordination polymers of the type [M(4,4-bpy)(1-TCNQ)2(CH 3OH)2]TCNQ (M=Mn, Zn) have been realized by using TCNQ (7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane) as a building block (see picture). Regularly spaced stacks of TCNQ are connected to a MnII-4,4-bipyridine spine by two 1-TCNQ ligands involved in a stacked column with free TCNQ radicals. Copyright 2011 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
