Presenting a ferrocene Ferris wheel
By fusing ferrocene molecules together, a research team has prepared new iron-based macrocycles that resemble a Ferris wheel. Ferrocene linear chains and macrocycles have been made before, but they contained spacer groups separating the metallocene units, which don’t allow much interaction between the iron atoms. Michael S. Inkpen, Nicholas J. Long, and Tim Albrecht of Imperial College London and their colleagues have now made examples in which . . .
