The structure of phenothiazine is rigid, being tricyclic. It is known to alter dopamine (3,4-dihydroxyphenethylamine). Its use as an electron donor is based on its unique hole transporting ability, electron releasing nitrogen and sulfur heteroatoms and its non-planar structure leading to lower molecular aggregation.
