A 1,2,3,5-dithiadiazolyl dimeric radical cation. Preparation and solid state characterization of 1,3-[(S2N2C)C6H4(CN2S2)](2)[Cl](3)

by Britten, James F.; Cordes, A. Wallace; Haddon, Robert C.; Itkis, Mikhail E.; Oakley, Richard T.; Reed, Robert W.; Robertson, Craig M.

The biradical 1,3-benzene-bis(1,2,3,5-dithiadiazolyl) [1,3-S] forms a mixed valence salt [1,3-S]2[Cl]3 by controlled oxidation with chlorine. The structure of this salt contains a dimeric radical cation [CN2S2](2)(+), the first example of this unit in dithiadiazolyl chemistry. Variable temperature magnetic susceptibility measurements indicate a strongly antiferromagnetically coupled system.
