Abstract

A new heterometallic electroactive compound having the ferrocenyl moiety attached to the platinum atom through an amidine functionality has been prepared via Pt(ii)-mediated nucleophilic addition of β-aminoethylferrocene to a benzonitrile ligand. This neutral receptor shows remarkable electrochemical anion-sensing redox response to H 2PO 4 -.
