The successful synthesis of dimethyltetrathiotetracene (DMTTT) has been achieved in our laboratory and an account of the details of the synthesis has been reported. Reported herein are studies of the physical properties of DMTTT and some of its chemistry. Both 1:1 and 2:1 DMTTTX charge transfer salts have been prepared and are in the process of being characterized in our laboratory. Comparisons of physical properties and the results of studies such as single crystal x-ray diffraction, solid state ESR spectra, cyclic voltammetry and electrical conductivity are reported. To date, these comparisons reveal considerable similarity between the properties of any given DMTTT charge transfer salt and its corresponding tetrathiotetracene (TTT) charge transfer salt.
