Abstract

original image

Diastereomeric and interconvertable [4]diboradicarbaferrocenophanes were obtained by platinum-catalyzed diboration of a dialkyne. They were fully characterized and their electrochemistry was studied by cyclic voltammetry. DFT calculations were carried out to examine the interconversion reaction.
