A novel redox-active calixarene-TTF 5 was prepared by the reaction of p-tert-butylcalixarene 4 with the tosylated TTF 3 in the presence of cesium fluoride. The structure of the dyad 5 was identified by X-ray diffraction analysis, and the preliminary electrochemical properties of 5 were investigated by cyclic voltammetry (CV), for which two reversible one-electron waves were observed. Moreover, the UV-vis absorption spectra studies show that the dyad 5 undergoes progressive oxidation at the TTF moiety in presence of increasing amounts of Cu2+ or Hg2+. <alternatives> [...] </alternatives>
