1,12-Diferrocenyldodecane, [Fe2(C5H5)2(C22H32)], was synthesized from ferrocene and 1,12-dodecanedioyl chloride, followed by Clemmensen reduction. The single-crystal structure was determined at 100 K by X-ray diffraction and the spectroscopic and cyclic voltammetric data of 1,12-diferrocenyldodecane and its precursor are reported.
