Synthesis, spectroscopic, and X-ray structural analysis of the molecular complex between the N-(N′, N′-dimethylaminopropyl)phenothiazine hydrochloride, monohydrate, (DAPP) and 7,7,8,8-tetracyano-p-quinodimethane (TCNQ), has been carried out. Crystals of C29H27N6OSCl are monoclinic, P21/c,a=12.190(2),b=7.695(2),c=28.928(3)Å, β=91.68(1)°. The molecular complex consists of DAPP as donor binding to TCNQ as acceptor by the thiazine central ring and one of the aromatic rings stacking in parallel planes along thec-axis with an interplanar separation of 3.24Å and 3.16Å, respectively. The electronic and epr spectra of the complex are discussed.
