The preparation and characterization of four new ferrocene based dithiolate ligands, which have different spacer groups between the ferrocenyl moiety and the chalcogen centers, are presented. Furthermore, the complexation of ferrocene based dithiolate ligands to platinum, using the oxidative addition of the S-S bonds to Pt(0), is described. Moreover, the preparation of silylated reagents from the synthesized ligands and their use in cluster assembly are studied.
Cyclic voltammetry and UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy experiments were conducted on the synthesized ligands, complexes and cluster, and their results are presented here.
