Cyanine-like dyes with large bond-length alternation.
Herein, the synthesis and properties of alkyne-bridged carbocations, which are analogous in structure to cyanine dyes, are reported. An alkene-bridged dye, linked at the third position of the indole, was also synthesized as a reference compound. These new carbocations are stable under ambient conditions, allowing characterization by UV/Vis and NMR ((1)H and (13)C) spectroscopies. These techniques revealed a large degree of delocalization of the positive charge, similar to a previously reporte...Expand abstract
