Abstract: The structure of the title compound, bis(-ferrocene-1,1'-diyl)bis[chloro(N,N,N'N'-tetramethylethylenediamine)aluminium], [Al2Fe2Cl2(C5H4)4(C6H16N2)2], possesses a center of inversion and an anti conformation. Bound to each Al atom in the bridging position are one Cl atom and one molecule of N,N,N'N'-tetramethylethylenediamine (TMEDA). The angle between the least-squares planes of the two cyclopentadienyl (Cp) ligands is 3.6 (3)°. The five C atoms in the Cp rings are staggered on average at an angle of 10.3 (5)°.
