recent trends in applied supramolecular chemistry
, Chemical Society Reviews, 10.1039/c8cs00035b, 2018.08, Tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) has been extensively explored as a π-electron donor in supramolecular systems. Over the last two decades substantial advances have been made in terms of constructing elaborate architectures based on TTF and in exploiting the resulting systems in the context of supramolecular host-guest recognition. The inherent electron-donating character of TTF derivatives has led to their use in the construction of highly efficient optoelectronic materials, optical sensors, and electron-transfer ensembles. TTFs are also promising candidates for the development of the so-called “functional materials” that might see use in a range of modern technological applications. Novel synthetic strategies, coupled with the versatility inherent within the TTF moiety, are now allowing the architecture of TTF-based systems to be tuned precisely and modified for use in specific purposes. In this critical review, we provide a “state-of-the-art” overview of research involving TTF-based macrocyclic systems with a focus on their use in supramolecular host-guest recognition, as components in non-covalent electron transfer systems, and in the construction of “molecular machines”..
2. Atanu Jana, Masatoshi Ishida, Jung Su Park, Steffen Bähring, Jan O. Jeppesen, Jonathan L. Sessler, Tetrathiafulvalene- (TTF-) Derived Oligopyrrolic Macrocycles, Chemical Reviews, 10.1021/acs.chemrev.6b00375, 2017.02, After the epochal discovery of the "organic metal", namely, tetrathiafulvalene (TTF)-7,7,8,8-tetracyano-p-quinodimethane (TCNQ) dyad in 1973, scientists have made efforts to derivatize TTF for constructing various supramolecular architectures to control the charge-transfer processes by adjusting the donor-acceptor strength of the dyads for numerous applications. The interesting inherent electronic donor properties of TTFs control the overall electrochemical properties of the supramolecular structures, leading to the construction of highly efficient optoelectronic materials, photovoltaic solar cells, organic field-effect transistors, and optical sensors. Modified TTF structures thus constitute promising candidates for the development of so-called "functional materials" that could see use in modern technological applications. The versatility of the TTF unit and the pioneering synthetic strategies that have been developed over the past few decades provide opportunities to tune the architecture and function for specific purposes. This review covers the "state of the art" associated with TTF-annulated oligopyrrolic macrocyclic compounds. Points of emphasis include synthesis, properties, and potential applications..
