A multiferrocene triferrocenyltrithiophosphite was studied by X-ray single-crystal diffraction. Triferrocenyl trithiophosphite has nine axes of internal rotation: three P-S bonds, three C-S bonds and three Fe – cyclopentadienyl axes. Rotation around the P-S bonds results in a totally asymmetric structure with three ferrocenylthio-groups exhibiting different orientations towards the phosphorus lone electron pair (LEP). A comparison of DFT calculations and X-ray diffraction data is presented, in which we show which conformations are preferred for a given ligand.

Keywords: multi-ferrocenyl compounds, phosphorus thioesters, DFT calculations, trithiophosphite, X-ray
