Abstract

Extensive (electron) delocalization in the novel heteromolecular π-complex of the hindered naphthalene cation radical (OMN+) with naphthalene (NAP) accompanies the pronounced charge-transfer absorption band at ∼1100 nm in the near-IR. X-ray crystallography establishes the viability of the unusual “club sandwich” structure despite the repulsive electrostatic forces inherent to the dicationic unit.
