Electrocatalytic oxidative Z/E isomerization of a stilbene favoured by the presence of an electroactive persistent radical
01 January 2021

A push–pull-functionalized stilbene has been prepared, with an electroactive perchlorotriphenylmethyl (PTM˙) radical and dimethylamine units as electron-withdrawing and -donating moieties, respectively, showing an electrocatalytic redox-induced Z → E isomerization where the open-shell nature of PTM˙ plays a key role in the isomerization ocurrance.

    While oxidation of d8 anionic gold bis(dithiolene) complexes most often affords the corresponding neutral radical single-component conductor, an original gold bis(diselenolene) complex isolated as a Ph4P+ salt affords upon electrocrystallization a mixed-valence 1 : 2 salt, [Ph4P][Au(Me-thiazds)2]2 (Me-thiazds: 2-methyl-1,3-thiazoline-2-thione-4,5-diselenolate).
