Acetylenic coupling reactions allow for construction of a wide variety of redox-active extended tetrathiafulvalenes (TTFs) from simple acetylenic dithiafulvene building blocks. This highlight covers the synthesis of such acetylenic TTF scaffolds with oligoyne, di-, tri-, or tetraethynylethene cores.

Keywords: tetrathiafulvalene, di/tri/tetraethynylethene, C-C coupling, Alkynes
