The electronic structure of TEMPO (2,2,6,6-Tetramethylpiperidine-N-oxyl) and its cation and anion were studied experimentally using the electron spectroscopy techniques, dissociative electron attachment (DEA) spectroscopy, electron energy-loss spectroscopy, measurement of elastic and vibrational excitation (VE) cross sections and HeI photoelectron spectroscopy. The experiments were supplemented...

A new 1,3-dithiol-2-ylidene substituted naphthopyranone 2 has been synthesized and characterized. UV–vis spectroscopic and cyclic voltammetry results, interpreted on the basis of density functional theory, show that 2 displays an intramolecular charge-transfer transition and acts like a donor–acceptor (D–A) system. Furthermore, a weak fluorescence originating from the excited...
