Abstract

A simple synthesis of a dendritic hexaferrocenyl electron donor (5) is described in which six ferrocene moieties are connected at the vertices of the propeller of the hexaphenylbenzene core. The molecular structure of 5 is confirmed by X-ray crystallography. An electrochemical analysis along with redox titrations (which are tantamount to coulometry) confirmed that it ejects six electrons at a single potential.
