Abstract

Diazadithiafulvalenes act as excellent electron donors to arenediazonium salts. The diazadithiafulvalenium radical cations trap primary carbon radicals successfully. However, the diazadithiafulvalenium salts which form, undergo rapid ring fragmentation in contrast to their tetrathia counterparts.
