New Ferrocene Derivatives for Ligand Grafting

Andrii Karpus, Jean-Claude Daran, Zoia Voitenko, Eric Manoury


Five new 1,2-disubstituted ferrocene derivatives have been efficiently synthesized. These compounds contain one protected phosphine function as thiophosphine, another coordination site (nitrogen or oxygen atom) and a function ready for the grafting on various supports. All compounds have been and fully characterized by NMR(1H, 31P and 13C)  and High Resolution Mass Spectroscopy. The molecular structure of three of these ferrocene derivatives have been determined by X ray diffraction analysis on monocrystals.
