Molecular and crystal structure of ferrocenedisulfonyl chloride


  1. 1.

    The structure of ferrocendisulfonyl chloride was investigated. The interatomic distances and valence angles were found. The shortest intermolecular distances were calculated.

  2. 2.

    On the basis of the data obtained, it was shown that there is an intimate electronic interaction between the ferrocene nucleus and the sulfonyl chloride group, which leads to a redistribution of bond lengths and a decrease in the chemical activity of the chlorine in the sulfonyl chloride group in comparison with normal aromatic sulfonyl chlorides.
