Synthesis of ferrocene based macrocycles

  1. Nov 11, 2013 #1
    I've been asked to synthesise this ferrocene based macrocycle (shown in picture below) starting from ferrocene and other available materials from Aldrich. I need to make sure molar equivalents are spot on with reagents. Can anyone help please?

    I need to give a synthetic route starting from ferrocene to get to that compound in the picture

    Your school probably pays in excess of 6 figures per year for Scifinder...In other words you really are through tuition. Try it out at your library. It can do almost everything for you. It is a mind blowing collection of knowledge that has been amassed by mankind that can be searched through with SF.
