Many organometallic compounds have attracted a considerable amount of attention from the researchers. Ferrocene-based derivatives have been used in various applications including their use as combustion regulators, radiation absorbers, constituents of the redox systems, burning rate catalysts for composite solid propellants, efficient non-toxic medicines, amperometric biosensors and carbon monoxide sensors due to their electrical, magnetic, optical, and redox properties.
