Abstract: Synthesis of water soluble carboxylate-terminated Fe4S4-core was carried out. Convergent method was chosen to build three generations of dendrons. Several synthetic schemes were explored. The syntheses were conducted with 4,4-bis(hydroxyphenyl)penthanol as a repeat unit and N,N-dimethyl thiocarbamate and methyl ester or methoxy-methyl as protecting groups. The conditions for deprotection and ligand exchange have been proposed. 1H, 13C and MALDI-MS were used to characterize synthesized molecules.
