ABSTRACT: The title compound, C(7)H(6)S(5), contains a 5-yl-idene-1,3-dithiolo[4,5-d][1,3]dithiole-2-thione framework, which is an important synthetic precursor of multi-dimensional organic superconductors and conductors. The mol-ecular framework is planar with an r.m.s. deviation of 0.012?Å for the non-H atoms. In the crystal structure, mol-ecules are linked by short inter-molecular S?S inter-actions [3.501?(5) and 3.581?(4)?Å], constructing a zigzag mol-ecular tape network along the c axis.
