Description

Application

Ferrocene (dicyclopentadienyliron) can be used:
• As a scaffold for chiral ligands in asymmetric catalysis.
• In ferrocene-based electrolytes for dye sensitized solar cells applications.
• In the synthesis of unsymmetrical ferrocene ligands used as catalysts in cross-coupling, hydrogenation, allylic substitution, hydroformylation and aldol reactions.
• In the synthesis of two-dimensional hexagonally ordered mesoporous carbon (CMK-5) via chemical vapor deposition method, which is used as a catalyst support in oxidation of methanol.
• In the synthesis of molecular hybrids of ferrocene and fullerene (Bucky ferrocenes).
• In the preparation of ferrocenium salt which is used as a mild oxidant.
