Abstract
The S-Se-N-based heterocycle benzo[2,1-c:3,4-c ' ]bis(1,2,3-thiaselenazole) (BSe) can be prepared by the condensation of 1,4-diaminobenzene-2,3-dithio l with selenium tetrachloride. Crystals of this. compound are not isomorpho us with the related benzo[2,1-c:3,4-c ' ]bis(1,2,3-dithiazole) (BT); a stru cture is adopted that allows for more extensive intermolecular Se- - -Se co ntacts. Electro-oxidation of BSe in the presence of [n-Bu4N][ClO4] affords metallic green needles of the charge transfer salt [BSe]3[ClO4](2), which e xhibit a pressed pellet conductivity sigma (RT) = 10(-1) S cm(-1). The crys tal structure of [BSe](3)[ClO4](2) consists of slipped pi -stacks based on the triple-decker building block. The packing is analogous to that found fo r the charge transfer salt decker closed shell [BSe](3)(2+) building block. The packing is analogous to that found for the charge transfer salt [BT](3 )[FSO3](2), for which sigma (RT) = 10(-2) S cm(-1). Extended Mickel band st ructure calculations on these two (sulfur- and selenium-based) 3:2 salts re veal more extensive intermolecular interactions in the selenium compound. A s a result, the latter has a more two-dimensional electronic structure.
