Abstract

The first synthesis of a series of glutamic acid based dendrimers having a central ferrocene core is described. The materials were fully characterized spectroscopically and display strong intramolecular H-bonding. This H-bonding can be disrupted with DMSO. The redox properties of the core are attenuated by the increase in the peptide dendritic sphere. But even at generation 6, there is communication between the exterior and the redox core.
