H-shaped oligothiophenes with low band gaps and amphoteric redox properties

Keywords

H-shaped bridged oligothiophenes

Abstract

​H-shaped bridged oligothiophenes HT-1 and HT-2 were synthesized by two different approaches. Different from normal oligothiophenes, HT-1 and HT-2 showed low band gaps and amphoteric redox behaviors due to intramolecular charge transfer, which is further supported by time-dependent DFT calculations.
