Abstract

The synthesis and spectroscopic characterization of novel disubstituted glutamic acid dendrimers constructed on a ferrocene core are reported. The strong intramolecular hydrogen bonding observed in monosubstituted variants of the currently studied dendrimers is also observed for the disubstituted systems. DMSO is found to selectively disrupt this hydrogen bonding. The absence of any redox activity in generations 5 and 6 demonstrates the complete encapsulation of the ferrocene core.
