Peripheral expansion: A series of peripherally tetrathiafulvalene (TTF)-annulated subphthalocyanines was synthesized (see scheme). These compounds exhibited unique perturbed optical properties, such as a comparatively broad Q band absorption and gradual quenching of fluorescence upon increasing the number of TTF units, while electrochemical measurements revealed TTF-centered oxidation processes.
