Abstract

The sulfur-containing heterocycle, tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) and its derivatives have been intensively studied during the past two decades on account of their unique π electron donor properties. They were originally prepared for the development of electrically conducting materials and have, as such, been synonymous with the development of molecular organic metals. However, during the past few years, the utility of TTF derivatives as building blocks in macrocyclic and supramolecular chemistry has revealed that the TTF moiety is useful beyond the field of materials chemistry. Progress in synthetic TTF chemistry has enabled the preparation of elaborate molecular architectures and consequently TTF has been incorporated into a number of molecular and supramolecular systems, such as cyclophanes, catenanes, rotaxanes, dendrimers, and polymers. Molercular devices based on host-guest interactions may act as for example sensors or molecular switches. Among these systems mechanically-interlocked architectures such as catenanes and rotaxanes are now prime candidates for the construction of artificial molecular machines and the fabrication of molecular electronic devices.
