Abstract

Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

The cover picture shows the results of the electrochemical investigation (cyclic voltammetry) of various silylferrocene derivatives and the crystal structure of [{Cp*(CO)3MoSiMe2C5H4}2Fe]. These results reveal that the HSiMe2 and Cp*Mo(CO)3(SiMe2) groups have electron-withdrawing and electron-donating properties, respectively. Details of the synthesis, the electrochemical properties and the first structurally characterized silyl–molybdenum complexes connected by a 1,1′-metallocenylene unit are discussed in the article by H. Nakazawa et al. on page 5496 ff.
