Bimetallic complexes, A–CH2–B(1) and A–(CH2)2–B(2), were synthesized in which (η-cyclopentadienyl)(1,2-dicyano-1,2-ethylenedithiolato)cobalt(III) (A) and ferrocene (B) moieties are bound at the cyclopentadienyl(cp) rings by–CH2–. Their cyclic voltammogramms show the presence of the intramolecular interaction between the two metal complex moieties, A and B. Moiety B (oxidized form) promotes decomposition of the oxidized form of A. The MS fragment patterns of 1 and 2 suggest the presence of a species in which two sulfur atoms of the dithiolene ligand bridge the two metal atoms.
