We synthesized a series of poly(tetrathiafulvalenylethynyl)benzenes and investigated their association properties in neutral and cationic states. The association constants of 1a and 2a with butylthio substituents in CDCl 3 solution are 1.4 M -1 and 11.0 M -1 at 20°C, respectively. Cationic species derived from 1, 2 and 3 more easily aggregate in solution. The cation radicals prepared by doping of 1 and 2 with iodine show electrical conductivities as semiconductors. Key words. TTF - association - mixed valence state - dimer - conductivity.
