Although in the past a large variety of tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) and tetraselenafulvalene (TSeF) derivatives have been prepared, no molecules have appeared in the literature in which TTF or TSeF units are linked together by single bonds. We have now found a high yield single-step synthesis of dimeric tetrathiafulvalene and tetraselenafulvalene. These compounds are shown in the figure below and generalized therein as structure 4.
