The increasing availability of functionalized BEDT-TTF derivatives in both racemic and enantiopure forms opens up great opportunities for preparing multifunctional materials and chiral conducting systems in the form of crystals, thin films and polymers. Functionalities such as amino and carboxyl will allow attachment to other molecular systems, while intermolecular interactions between substituents, e.g. hydrogen bonding and halegon- - - halegon interactions, provides additional tools for designing solid state radical cation structures. In this review the syntheses of substituted derivatives of BEDT-TTF and closely related donors are surveyed, along with the structures and properties of the radical cation salts so far prepared, as a stimulus for future application of these versatile and attractive molecules. Particular attention is paid to the preparation of single enantiomers, and to the stereochemical consequences of the synthetic procedures.
