Abstract

The C2-symmetrical “salen” ligand (+)-9 bearing two [5]ferrocenophane substituents has been prepared in five steps starting from readily available diacetylferrocene, p-hydroxybenzaldehyde and (R,R)-N,N’-diphenylethylenediamine. Reaction of (+)-9 with Mn(OAc)3, Co(OAc)2 ZnEt2 or UO2(OAc)2 gave the corresponding metal-complexes which were characterised by spectroscopic methods.
Keywords: chiral salen ligands; [5]ferrocenophane; metal complexes; circular dichroism spectra chiral salen ligands; [5]ferrocenophane; metal complexes; circular dichroism spectra
