Synthesis of ferrocene derivatives from ferrocenecarbonitriles

Summary

  1. 1.

    Ferrocenecarbonitrile was converted into ferrocenecarboxylic acid, its amide, and its ethyl ester in good yields. The nitrile was reduced to ferrocenemethylamine and to ferrocenecarboxaldehyde.

  2. 2.

    1,1′-Ferrocenedicarbonitrile was hydrolyzed to the ferrocenedicarboxylic acid.

  3. 3.

    Ferrocenecarbonitriles are less reactive than nitriles of the benzene series.
