Abstract

Reacting 2-lithio-1,3-dithioles with 1,3-dithiolium salts results in formation of both symmetrical and unsymmetrical tetrathiafulvalenes. The symmetrical tetra-thiafulvalenes are probably formed via a carbene intermediate which is generated by loss of an hydride from the 2-lithio-1,3-dithioles.
