Scholarcy highlights

  • With the MCp2 structure, they are sandwich complexes in which the two Cp rings are parallel
  • Metallocenes are known with most metals, and have applications in organic, polymer and medicinal chemistry
  • The sandwich MCp2 structure is very robust with NVE = 18
  • Cyclopentadienyl-metal-arene complexes are mostly known with Fe and Ru
  • With Fe, they are stable in the 17, 18 and 19e forms with permethylated rings, which provides electron-reservoir properties and proton-reservoir functions
