Abstract

Pi in the sky: 1,2-bis(ferrocenyl)distibene and 1,2-bis(ferrocenyl) dibismuthene derivatives, where two bulky ferrocenyl units are bridged by a Sb=Sb and Bi=Bi π spacer, have been synthesized as a new family of novel d-π conjugated systems. Their molecular structures, spectroscopic behavior, and electrochemical properties reveal the Sb=Sb and Bi=Bi units to be effective π-electron spacers.
