Abstract : During this initial two month period of activity we have already made progress in our program to learn to design organic conducting materials. We are concentrating our efforts mainly, but not exclusively, on the D...A...D and A...D...A molecular motifs outlined in the original proposal. As noted in the original proposal the archetypal molecular unit 1 is potentially endowed with a number of properties which are considered to be necessary conditions for electrical conduction in organic charge-transfer complexes: the stoichiometric donor:acceptor (D:A) ratio is predesigned into the molecule; appropriate chemical variations in A and D may be employed to modify the degree of charge-transfer from D to A and to obtain the desired delocalized electronic state. In the framework of this program we have completed the synthesis of two additional members of the family (2), and crystals of sufficient quality for structure determination have been obtained for 2b and 2c.
