Deep blue diving: π Acidities up to a new record of -4.74 eV are made possible with simple sulfur redox chemistry (see scheme). This attractive method is able to generate exceptional electron affinities and anion transport efficiencies for applications in optoelectronic devices, medicinal chemistry, and anion-π catalysis.
