Ferrocenecarbonitrile was converted into ferrocenecarboxylic acid, its amide, and its ethyl ester in good yields. The nitrile was reduced to ferrocenemethylamine and to ferrocenecarboxaldehyde.
1,1′-Ferrocenedicarbonitrile was hydrolyzed to the ferrocenedicarboxylic acid.
Ferrocenecarbonitriles are less reactive than nitriles of the benzene series.
