Abstract

The crystal structure of [2,2′-bithiophene]-5-carboxylic acid was obtained from in-situ decarboxylation of [2,2′-bithiophene]-5,5′-dicarboxylic acid during solvothermal treatment. UV–Vis absorption and fluorescence spectroscopies were conducted in solution and solid-state on these two molecules as well as the precursor, 2,2′-bithiophene. These molecules were modeled using DFT level of theory to explain the observed structural features and spectroscopy.
