Abstract

A new cyclophane-type crown ether endowed with two exTTF units forms supramolecular ensembles with different dibenzylammonium salts with a binding constant of Ka∼50 M-1 determined by 1H NMR and fluorescence experiments. Cyclic voltammetry studies show the existence of electronic interaction between the exTTF units due to the flexible nature of the crown ether chains.
