Abstract: Electrocrystallisations of the chiral donor molecule S,S-bis(2-hydroxylpropylthio)ethylenedithiotetrathiafulvalene have produced a series of 1[thin space (1/6-em)]:[thin space (1/6-em)]1 semiconducting radical-cation salts with anions bromide, chloride, perchlorate and hexafluorophosphate. The flexibility and hydrogen bonding ability of the donor's chiral side chains lead to three quite different packing arrangements of donor cation pairs. Conductivity is maintained despite significant separations of donor cation pairs in some cases.
