Ruthenium and iron sandwich complexes incorporating cyclopentadienyl analogs with CB2N2− skeletons were characterized. Electrochemical measurements supported by computational studies revealed that in combination with larger metal ions such as Ru the CB2N2− ligand can be more electron-rich than its organic counterpart.
