Abstract

Synthesis of a novel viologen functionalized with two 15-crown-5 units, and its reduction by sodium dithionite in organic media, were conducted; the viologen is efficiently reduced to its monomeric cation radical owing to the solubilisation of sodium dithionite in the organic solvent by the 15-crown-5 moiety.
