Equation presented We report the synthesis of a novel end-capped sexithiophene derivative bearing two pendent, fused tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) units linked to the main chain through 1,4-dithiin heterocycles. Cyclic voltammetry and absorption spectroscopy are used to investigate the electronic properties of this hybrid electroactive material. The oligomer has a band gap of 2.1 eV, and the material can be oxidized through the sexithiophene and TTF units simultaneously.
