Ferrocenyl-substituted Bicyclo[1.1.1]pentasilanes: Evaluation of Significant Interactions between Ferrocenyl Units and Rigid Silicon Cages
Access this Article
Ferrocenyl-substituted bicyclo[1.1.1]pentasilanes <b>1</b>, <b>2</b>, and <b>3</b> were synthesized by the reactions of bromo-substituted bicyclo[1.1.1]pentasilanes with lithioferrocene. Significant interactions between bicyclo[1.1.1]pentasilane and ferrocenyl units were suggested by cyclic voltammetry, UV–vis absorption spectrum, and theoretical calculations.
