Abstract

The synthesis is reported of a series of dipolar arylphosphonium salts bearing ferrocenylethenyl, 2-thienylethenyl, 4-dimethylaminophenylethenyl, or (4-dimethylaminophenyl)butadienyl electron-donor centres, together with a study of their course of alkaline hydrolysis, which provides a convenient synthetic route to related dipolar phosphine oxides. The phosphonium salts exhibit a modest degree of negative solvatochromism, whereas the related phosphine oxides show a small positive solvatochromic effect. In the case of the ferrocenyl systems, the electronic effects of the phosphorus acceptor group on the ferrocene unit have been studied by cyclic voltammetry.
