Abstract

We describe the electrochemically controlled hydrogen bonding interactions between the isobutyl flavin/2,6-diferrocenylamidopyridine (2.5) and 9,10-phenanthrenequinone/1-ferrocenyl-3-hexylurea (4.6) dyads. Cyclic and square wave voltammetry studies have shown that the binding efficiencies between these moieties can be electrochemically actuated in non-polar (CH2Cl2 for 2.5) or polar (DMF for 4.6) organic solvents between three distinct states. © 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd.
