Abstract:New or rarely reported synthetic routes have been applied to produce electroactive hybrid materials from ferrocene (Fc) derivatives with a known and pre-established variation in the tethering arm bound to Si. The series is characterized for having the shortest molecular link for a direct covalent attachment to H-terminated Si(100). Grignard derivatization, Lewis acid catalysis and nucleophilic substitution by an acetilyde anion have been applied for the first time in order to obtain the full series of possible…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
