The synthesis of bis-TTF 1 and tris-TTF 2, linked by an ethenyl spacer, is described using new useful Wittig-type reagents with the introduction of phosphonate functionality on 1,3-dithiole and TTF frameworks. Electrochemical and spectroscopic studies show intramolecular electronic interactions between conjugated TTF units.
