Abstract

Derivatives of (1.1)ferrocenophane, which carry a reactive olefin function at one of the bridges, are useful in attaching the ferrocenophane system to various semiconductor surfaces. However, once the material is deposited on the surface, the second bridge can rapidly become oxidized unless it is protected by a methyl group. The compound 1-methyl 12-vinyliden-(1.1) ferrocenophane 1 is such a material, possessing increased resistance to oxidation.
