Novel TTF vinylogues containing phenyl substituents at the vinyl positions were prepared by using oxidative coupling reactions of the 1,4-dithiafulvenes, where fused-pyrazine rings, 1,3-dithiole-2-thione rings, acenaphtho[1,2-b][1,4]dithiine units and ethylenedioxy groups were introduced at the 1,3-dithiole parts. Mono-phenyl substituted derivatives were also prepared to reduce the steric interactions. The cyclic voltammetry and X-ray structure studies revealed the substituent effects on the redox behavior.
