Acetylferrocene is the organometallic / organoiron compound. It consists of ferrocene substituted by an acetyl group on one of the cyclopentadienyl rings. It is an orange, air-stable solid that is soluble in organic solvents. Acetylferrocene is prepared by acetylation of ferrocene, usually with acetic anhydrideAcetylferrocene can be converted to many derivatives, e.g., reduction to the chiral alcohol. The oxidized derivative, acetylferrocenium, is used as a 1e-oxidant in the research laboratory.
