A new bis(terpyridine) ligand with an anthraquinone linker was synthesized. Stepwise coordination reactions at the gold surface using this ligand gave homo-metal oligomer wires up to pentamer, [nFeL1] (n = 1-5), and hetero-metal oligomer wires with ferrocene as the terminal group, [1FeL 11FeL2Fc]. Electrochemical properties of these modified electrodes were examined.
