The first diphosphaheteroquinoid compound, which contains two low-coordinate phosphorus atoms and a thienoquinoid skeleton (see picture), was isolated as air-stable orange crystals. Its quinoid nature was confirmed by x-ray crystallography and cyclic voltammetry, which revealed the expected redox behavior.
