Abstract

The reaction of diformyldithienylacetylene 4 with a McMurry reagent prepared from TiCl4, Zn, and pyridine in THF afforded 24π-dimer 1b (15%), 36π-trimer 2b (13%), and 48π-tetramer 3b (6%). From X-ray analysis, 1b adopts a twisted conformation, although the 1H NMR spectrum of 1b shows a symmetrical structure owing to a rapid conformational change in solution. Absorption and emission spectra, redox properties, and electric conductivities of 1b3b were measured in order to study the structure–property relationship of these macrocyclic systems.
