Gold standard: A bis(Au III) complex containing the title compound was prepared and characterized (see scheme; DDQ=2,3-dichloro-5,6- dicyano-1,4-benzoquinone, Tf=trifluoromethanesulfonyl). Owing to the effective conjugative network over the flat and elongated rectangular molecular frame, this complex displays a remarkably red-shifted and sharp Q-band-like band at 1467 nm, multiple reversible redox potentials, and a large TPA cross-section value.
