Ferrocene based Lewis acids for anion sensing
The synthesis, characterisation and anion binding properties of a series of mono- and bifunctional Lewis acidic borylferrocene compounds are described within this thesis.
The original parent compound FcBMes₂ (3.1), revealed a versatile route for the synthesis of such borylferrocenes and subsequently the analogous compound Fc*BMes₂ (3.2) was synthesised. The anion binding properties of (3.1) and (3.2) were investigated and both were shown to bind one equivalent of cyanide. The binding...Expand abstract
