Ditopic metalation of a flexible “Pacman”-like tetrathiafulvalene (TTF) modified Schiff-base-calixpyrrole results in the stabilization upon oxidation of an otherwise difficult-to-access mixed-valence TTF radical dimer. EPR and optical spectroscopies were used to characterize the mixed-valence species.
