    • Abstract


      As a model to understand electronic communication between transition metal centres in π-conjugated metal complex polymers, redox properties of soluble oligo(1,1’-ferrocenylene)s were investigated. The dependence of redox potentials on the number of redox nuclei can be explained using not only the neighboring site interaction energies,UOR,UOO andURR, but also the second neighbouring site interaction energy,UOXR. IR-spectroelectrochemistry of the (cyclopentadiene) Fe(CO)3-attached ferrocene, biferrocene and terferrocene has proved the theoretical prediction on the thermodynamically favorable forms of electronic isomers in the mixed valence states based on the neighboring site interaction energy.
