A series of tin(IV) compounds containing ferrocenyl chalcogenate (FcE) and ferrocenylene dichalcogenate (fcE 2 ) ligands (E = S, Se, Te) has been synthesized for a systematic study of the NMR spectra with particular emphasis on 13 C, 119 Sn, 77 Se and 125 Te NMR. All compounds are formally derived from tetramethylstannane, SnMe 4 , by stepwise replacement of methyl by either FcE or fcE 2 ligands. Starting from lithioferrocene the products are tetrasubstituted stannanes Me 4-n Sn(EFc) n (n = 1 and 2, E = S, Se, Te; n = 3 and 4, E = S, Se). Starting from 1,1′dilithioferrocene, the products are 1,1′-disubstituted ferrocenes such as fc(E-SnMe 3 ) 2 (E = S, Se, Te), although 1,3-dichalcogenaferrocenophane rings are formed whenever possible to give ferrocenophanes fcE 2 SnMe 2 (E = S, Se, Te) and fc[E-Sn(Me)E 2 fc] 2 (E = S, Se) or tin spiro compounds Sn(E 2 fc) 2 (E = S, Se, Te). Whereas all (8) possible sulfur-containing and all (8) selenium-containing products were accessible, some of the tellurium-rich compounds could not be isolated due to preferred formation of either Fc 2 Te 2 or fcTe 3 . All compounds were characterized on the basis of their 1 H, 13 C, 119 Sn and, if possible, 77 Se and 125 Te solution NMR spectra. In many cases, coupling constants such as 2 J( 119 Sn 1 H), n J( 119 Sn 13 C) (n = 1,2,3), 1 J( 119 Sn 77 Se) and 1 J( 125 Τe 119 Sn), 1 J( 77 Se 13 C) and 1 J( 125 Te 13 C) could be determined. The δ 119 Sn chemical shifts of analogous phenyl and ferrocenyl compounds, Me 4-n Sn(EPh) and Me 4-n Sn(EFc) n (n = 0-4, E = S, Se, Te), are discussed, and for a microcrystalline sample of tetrakis(ferrocenylselenolato)stannane, Sn(SeFc) 4 , the 119 Sn and 77 Se CP/MAS NMR spectra are reported and compared with the solution spectra.
