Iron carbodiimide materials have been prepared using transmetallation reaction from dilithium carbodiimide. The products were characterized by elemental analysis and infrared spectroscopy presenting the characteristic absorption of carbodiimide group (-NCN-). The partial oxidation of iron carbodiimide materials based on s-indacene ligand has shown a clear electronic delocalization observed by IR spectroscopy. The thermal degradation of these materials studied by thermogravimetric analyses (TGA), starts around 180-200°C.
