Abstract : Iodination of metallomacrocycles has been shown to be an effective synthetic approach to low-dimensional conducting materials consisting of partially oxidized molecular stacks. The weakness of this approach is that there is little synthetic control over the small differences in molecular and lattice forces which control the formation of stacks. An improvement to this approach was provided by the 'face-to-face' orientation of macrocycles found in the (M(Pc)O) subscript n materials. In this paper we show that a similar orientational effect exists in the linear chain compound composed of stacked hydrogen bis(phthalocyaninato) neodymium(III) (bis(Pc)Nd(III)) sandwich molecules.
