Here, we report the effects of electron donor and acceptor units attached with benzoselenadiazole for the change in optoelectronic and packing patterns in solid states. We have synthesized 4-methoxybenzene, naphthalene, and 4-nitrobenzene capped benzoselenadiazoles (compounds 1–3 respectively) and studied their photophysical as well as electrochemical properties. All three molecules show two absorption bands (π–π transition band and CT-band). Three molecules (1–3) show orange, yellow-green, and green colors in dichloromethane solutions upon irradiation of UV light at 365 nm. Benzoselenadiazole-based compounds 1–2 form head to head dimers via Se···N interactions in the solid states. Compounds 1 and 2 show interlock type packing via Se···N interaction in their solid state structures. Se···π interaction takes a major role to form interlocked sheet type structures in crystal packing of compound 1, whereas Se···N, N···N, and CH···π interactions help to form a supramolecular sheet type of structure in the crystal packing of compound 2. Band gaps of these compounds were tuned by changing the electron donating to electron withdrawing units attached with a benzoselenadiazole core.
