Synthesis, spectroscopy and morphology of new ferrocene schiff base containing thiophene ring in the conjugation chainAuthor(s): Zhang Yu-Mei, Liu Peng, Zhang Hong-Li
Novel Schiff bases derivative containing ferrocenylphenyl and thiophene was synthesized by facile method. The compound prepared was characterized by spectroscopic methods (IR, UVÂvisible, 1H NMR) and elemental analysis. It was found that the compound can self-assemble nanoparticles by precipitation fromCHCl3 solution drop-cast on Si wafer. The self-assembly process can be controlled, and another different rod-like nanostructure was obtained by utilizing a mixed solvent system(CHCl3 and EtOAc: 1:1, V/ V).
