In this micro-review dedicated to the memory of Professor Eberhard W. Neuse, some redox properties of ferrocenes and other iron–sandwich complexes that were essentially developed in the author’s laboratory are summarized including synthetic aspects, stoichiometric and electrocatalytic electron-transfer properties and applications to electrochemical references and to the chemistry of polymer networks and receptors.
