Air stable 1,3,7-triphenyl-1,4-dihydrothiazolo[5′,4′:4,5] benzo[1,2-e][1,2,4]triazin-4-yl packs in 1D π stacks made of radical pairs with alternate short and long interplanar distances. The magnetic susceptibility exhibits a broad maximum at 73 ± 5 K and is interpreted in terms of an alternating antiferromagnetic Heisenberg linear chain model with an average exchange interaction of J = -43.8 cm-1 and an alternation parameter α = 0.3 (gsolid = 2.0028). The enhanced overlap between the π-extended SOMO orbitals leads to strong antiferromagnetic interactions along the chains (J1 = -87.6 cm-1 and J2 = -26.3 cm-1).
