Conducting organic materials have drawn considerable attention due to the exciting possibilities of creating metallike conductivity and superconductivity and the potential applications of their interesting electrical, optical, and magnetic properties. The discovery of metallic conductivity in molecular organic systems was a breakthrough that aroused the interest of chemists, physicists, and theorists. High conductivities have also been achieved in oxidized/reduced polymers such as phthalocyanines, polyacetylenes, poly(p-phenylenes) polypyrrole, and polyani1ine. Several planar coordination oligomers possessing intrinsic electrical conductivity have been reported in the literature. Coordination complexes of 1,4di aminoanthraquinone with different metal atoms have been studied recently. Here, we report the synthesis, characterization, and low-temperature conducting properties of a novel conducting material formed by oxidizing 1,4-diaminoanthraquinon(1,4-DAAQ)with cerium(IV). The complex formed is stable at ambient conditions with very interesting conducting properties.
