Abstract The syntheses and characterization of two new redox active cyclam ligands ferrocenylmethyl-(6-methyl-1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradec-6-yl)-amine(L-3) and 1, 1'-ferrocenylmethyl-bis(6-methyl-1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradec-6-yl)-amine (L-4) are reported. The compounds each possess a ferrocenyl group bearing one (L-3) or two (L-4) appended macrocycles linked by their exocyclic amino groups and the crystal structures of both compounds have been determined. Anion binding of L-3 and L-4 was investigated by electrochemical titrations where H-bonding to each macrocycle causing a shift in the Fc(+/0) redox potential was used as a reporter of guest binding. The Zn-II complex of L-3 has also been isolated and characterized structurally. These compounds were analysed for their capacity to electrochemically recognize anions in both aqueous and non-aqueous solution. We have found that L-3, L-4 and [ZnL3-](2+) sense Cl- and AcO- anions in MeCN-CH2Cl2, a function that is lost in aqueous solution.
