A conjugated dinuclear iron complex, [CpFe-(dppm)]2(μ-CH═CHCH═CH), has been prepared and oxidized to radical cation and dication species. The butadienediyl bridge apparently allows for strong electronic coupling between the iron atoms, as determined by cyclic voltammetry, electronic absorption spectroscopy, and an X-ray crystal structure determination on the dication.
