Summary

In order to investigate the influence of iron-containing substituents on the redox behavior of oligosilanes a series of dicarbonylcyclopentadienyliron (Fp)- and ferrocene (Fc)-substituted silanes was subjected to cyclovoltammetric studies together with several reference compounds. UV-Vis and CV data indicate considerable donor-acceptor interaction in Fp-Si2Me4-C6H4CH[DOUBLE BOND]C(CN)2 (1). Furthermore, electrochemical synthesis of Fp-substituted silanes is reported.
