The condensation reaction of 1,n′-diaminoferrocene and 1,n′-ferrocene dicarboxylic acid gives rise of a series of novel oligo- and poly-ferrocene peptides. These materials are fully soluble in a variety of solvents and are fully characterized spectroscopically. There is no apparent electronic interaction between adjacent ferrocene groups in these systems.
