Abstract: Crystal structures of six 1 : 1 triiodide salts of a series of enantiopure bisIJpyrroloij3,4-d])TTF derivatives, the first structures of radical cation salts reported for this bisIJpyrrolo) donor system, show three different arrangements of triiodide ions, organised either in head-to-tail pairs, in infinite lines, or in a castellated arrangement. The complex crystal structures, obtained by electrocrystallisation, are influenced by the presence of solvent, for example changing an ABCABC packing arrangement to ABAB with inclusion of THF, as well as by the size of the chiral side chain.
