Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
We studied electronic change in oligothiophenes by employing o-carborane into a molecular array in which one or both end(s) were substituted by electron-withdrawing dicyano-vinyl group(s). Depending on mono- or bis-substitution at the o-carborane, a series of linear A1-D-A2 (1a–1c) or V-shaped A1-D-A2-D-A1 (2a–2c) oligothiophene chain structures of variable length were prepared; A1, D, and A2, represent dicyano-vinyl, oligothiophenyl, and o-carboranyl groups, respectively. Among this series, 2a shows strong electron-acceptor capability of o-carborane comparable to that of the dicyano-vinyl substituent, which can be elaborated by a conformational effect driven by cage σ*−π* interaction. As a result, electronic communications between o-carborane and dicyano-vinyl groups are successfully achieved in 2a.
