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…
