The synthesis of macrocycles comprising a 1,1′-bis(phenylethynyl)ferrocene subunit was developed to increase the structural control over the spatial arrangement of the two cyclopentadienyl ligands of the ferrocene junction. The target structures were obtained through a modular strategy that enables the assembly of varying ring sizes from a common precursor. In particular, macrocycles were either formed by an ether formation reaction or by ring-closing metathesis reactions. The macrocycles were obtained in reasonable isolated yields, which allowed their thorough characterization by one- and two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy experiments, and the identity of one macrocycle was corroborated by single-crystal X-ray diffraction.
