Copper(II)- and palladium(II)-catalyzed homo-coupling reactions of trimethylstannyltetraselenafulvalene proceed smoothly to produce bitetraselenafulvalene (biTSF) in good yield. The X-ray analysis of biTSF shows an interesting crystal structure. The CT-complex and radical cation salts derived from biTSF indicate fairly high electric conductivities.
