Thienodipyrimidine-2,4,5,7-tetra(thi)ones were prepared by one-pot photocyclization from barbituric acid derivatives. The structures of these tricyclic molecules with multiple (thio)carbonyl groups were determined by NMR and single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis, and the electrochemical properties were studied by cyclic voltammetry and DFT calculations. The solid-state structures of these molecules feature dipolar C=S (or C=O), chalcogen-bonding, and π-stacking interactions. The presence of two adjacent thiocarbonyl groups allows for a two-center three-electron (2c/3e) interaction upon oxidation, significantly lowering the oxidation potential.
