The molecular structures of naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2]dithiole, naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2]diselenole, naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2]ditellurole, naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2]dithiole I-oxide, naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2]dithiole 1,1-dioxide, and naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2]dithiole 1,1,2-trioxideand naphtho[1,8-cd][1,2]dithiole 1,1,2,2-tetroxide are compared. The E-E distance varies, broadly reflecting the degree of distortion imposed by the rigid naphthalene backbone as well as the degree of oxidation at sulfur. The naphthalene backbone imposes shortening of E-E bond lengths when E = S and Se compared to Ph-E-E-Ph systems but is itself subject to distortion as a consequence of the steric bulk of the E atoms.
