Abstract: The title compound, C31H26F6N4S2, is a new photochromic dithienylethene with dicyanovinyl subsitituents. In the crystal structure, the molecule adopts a photoactive antiparallel conformation, with two n-pentyl groups located on opposite sides of the cyclopentene ring. The cyclopentene ring assumes an envelope conformation. The distance between the two reactive C atoms on the thiophene rings is 3.834 (7) Å. One of the n-pentyl groups is disordered over two positions; the site occupancy factors are ca 0.7 and 0.3.
