Abstract

The synthesis and X-ray crystal structure of the [4]ferrocenophane compound [1,2-B2(NMe2)2{1,1′-(SC5H 4)2Fe}] which contains a B-B bond are described. The ferrocene-1,1′-dithiolate group bridges the B-B bond of the diborane(4) unit [B-B 1.709(9) Å] in a 1,2- fashion. Each boron centre is trigonal planar, the angle between these planes being 82.0° such that the conformation about the B-B bond is staggered rather than eclipsed. All other angles fall within expected ranges indicating that there is little strain present in this compound.
