DESCRIPTION AND APPLICATIONS

Ferrocene, yellow to orange crystal melting at 173 C, is an organometallic compound of sandwich structure. It has two five membered carbon rings which are parallel, with the iron ion sandwiched between them. Its systematic name is Di-[]-Cyclopentadienyl Iron(II) or Bis(5-Cyclopentadienyl) Iron. The bonding is between pi orbitals on the rings and d-orbitals on the Fe2+ ion. It is used as a combustion control additive in fuels, antiknock agent in gasoline, and for heat stabilization in greases and plastics. It is used as a catalyst for the synthesis of ammonia. Ferrocene derivatives, can be described as a multi-electron transfer, are useful for following fields:
  • Stating material for more coordination of organometallic-complexes
  • Redox mediators in biosensor
  • Catalysts for the oxidative organic synthesis
  • Molecular chemistry
  • Disease diagnosis and treatment
  • Water treatment
  • Photolysis chemistry
