Abstract/Summary

A library of 18 conjugated, rod-like compounds with either one or two viologen residues were synthesized and characterized electrochemically. Containing up to 8 aromatic/heterocyclic rings in conjugation, the members of the library differ in the substitution pattern of electron-withdrawing or -donating groups on the aromatic substituents of the viologen units. The first and second half-wave potentials of each member were found to be linearly correlated with the calculated pKb values of the aromatic end-groups. This relationship will enable the half-wave potentials of related, novel, substituted viologen species to be predicted using a simple, empirical formula
