Abstract

Tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) is a fascinating system: it is quite rare to find a synthetic molecule endowed with such a simple architecture that is capable of concentrating intense interest from various communities of chemists! This modest-sized molecule which consists of only 14 atoms, was synthesized in the early nineteen seventies [1-3] and since then has proved to be exceptionally popular in various fields of chemistry.
