Abstract

The reaction of 4-ferrocenyl-1,3-dithiole-2-thione with diiodine affords an unprecedented 'double' charge-transfer complex; the highly ordered ferrocenium units are held by a supramolecular polyiodide chain, and the material shows evidence of the formation of zigzag magnetic chains below 2 K.
