This paper discusses the synthesis and characterization of a series of ferrocene oligo- and polyamides having phenylene, cyclohexyl, or lysyl spacer groups separating the electroactive ferrocene groups. The oligomeric materials are characterized by spectroscopic means and display an electrochemical signature indicating very limited electronic communication between the ferrocenes. The ferrocene-phenylene polymer however, shows clear indications of weak electronic interactions.
