    Name:dicyclopentadieny iron / Combustion Booster Ferrocene

    Features:Also known as dicyclopentadienyl iron or cyclopentadienyl iron, it is an organometallic compound of the formula Fe(C5H5)2. Orange crystalline solid; has a camphor-like odor; melting point 172.5 ~ 173 ° C, 100 ° C to rise, boiling point 249 ° C; diamagnetic, dipole moment zero; insoluble in water, 10% sodium hydroxide and hot concentrated hydrochloric acid , soluble in dilute nitric acid, concentrated sulfuric acid, benzene, ether, petroleum ether and tetrahydrofuran. Ferrocene is stable in air, has a strong absorption of ultraviolet light, is quite stable to heat, and can withstand high temperature heating at 470 ° C; neither dissolves nor decomposes in boiling water, 10% boiling alkali solution and concentrated hydrochloric acid boiling liquid. Ferrocene is the most important metallocene complex and the first sandwich complex found to contain two cyclopentadiene rings bonded to iron atoms.

    Physical Property & Specification

    Ferrocene namely cyolopentadienyl iron with the chemical formula of Fe(C5H5)2, is an efficient and versatile additive and chemical reagent. Ferrocene is a metallorganic complex with the smell of camphor. Ferrocene has a melting point of 172-174°C, boiling point of 249°C. It is dissolved in organic solvents such as benzene, diethyl ether, methanol, ethyl alcohol, gasoline, diesel oil, and kerosene, but not in aqueous. It is chemically steady and poisonousless, not reacting with acid, alkail and ultraviolet. It doesn't decompose until 400°C. Mixed with Ferrocene, the diesel oil can be preserved for a long use.

    Production Method for Ferrocene

    Ferrocene is the most important metallocene complex and the first sandwich complex found to contain two cyclopentadiene rings bonded to iron atoms.

    The structure of ferrocene is such that one iron atom is between the rings of two parallel cyclopentadienes. In the solid state, the two molybdenum rings are staggered to each other in a completely wrong configuration, and when the temperature is raised, they are relatively rotated about the vertical axis. Ferrocene is chemically stable and resembles aromatic compounds. The ring of ferrocene can undergo an electrophilic substitution reaction such as mercuryation, alkylation, acylation, and the like. It can be oxidized to [Cp2Fe]+, and the oxidation state of the iron atom increases, causing the electrons of the ring (Cp) to flow to the metal, hindering the electrophilic substitution reaction of the ring. Ferrocene is resistant to hydrogenation and does not react with maleic anhydride. Ferrocene reacts with n-butyllithium to form monolithium ferrocene and dilithium ferrocene. The molybdenum can interact with each other in the ferrocene molecule, and the bluntness on one ring causes the other ring to be blunt to varying degrees, to a lesser extent than in the benzene ring.

    The ferrocene is obtained by heating iron powder and cyclopentadiene in a nitrogen atmosphere at 300 ° C or by reacting anhydrous ferrous chloride with sodium cyclopentadienide in tetrahydrofuran.


    rocket fuel additive, an antiknock agent for gasoline, and a curing agent for rubber and silicone. It can also be used as a UV absorber. The vinyl derivative of ferrocene can undergo olefinic polymerization to obtain a metal-containing polymer of a carbon chain skeleton, which can be used as an outer coating for a spacecraft.
