A series of osmocene-containing carboxylic acids, Oc(CH)COOH, where = 1, 2 and 3, and osmocene-containing alcohols, Oc(CH)OH, where = 1, 2, 3 and 4, were synthesised and characterised, using 1H NMR spectroscopy and infrared spectroscopy. Cyclic voltametric studies on the series of alcohols and carboxylic acids demonstrated a decrease in the formal reduction potential (E°') as the number of -CH- spacers increased. The crystal structures of 2-osmocenylacetonitrile and 2-osmocenylethanol were determined by single-crystal X-ray crystallography.
