About this book


After an introduction to their fundamentals and history, this book systematically reviews ferrocene-based compounds, polymers and hydrogels. It explains in detail the synthetic methods for and properties of each ferrocene-based compound, polymer and hydrogel, and also extensively discusses their applications, including electrochemistry, catalysis and sensors. An outlook chapter on remaining challenges and future perspectives rounds out the coverage.

Providing a wealth of valuable information on ferrocene-related studies, the book appeals to researchers, professionals and graduate students working in the fields of organic and polymer chemistry, as well as materials science.
