Abstract

Solution and solid state methods for the identification of TCNQF 4, TCNQF4 ̇- and TCNQF4 2- redox levels (TCNQF4 = 2,3,5,6-tetrafluoro-7,7,8,8- tetracyanoquinodimethane) are described. Solution phase UV-Vis spectroscopy and electrochemistry can be used for both qualitative and quantitative determinations, while infrared and Raman spectroscopies are very powerful for solid state identification. Analogous strategies can also be applied to other TCNQ derivatives (TCNQ = 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane).
