Abstract

A tetrathiafulvalene donor has been annulated to 2,3-di(1H-2-pyrrolyl)quinoxaline affording a new chemosensor 1, which shows a unique optical selectivity and reactivity for the fluoride ion over other anions in CH2Cl2 leading to a colorimetric response. Electrochemical polymerization of 1 occurred in the presence of fluoride.
