Abstract: The title compound, [Fe(C5H5)(C11H9O)], is of interest as a precursor to the synthesis of cheap ferrocene-based liquid crystals. The -OH substituent only results in weak C-HO weak interactions between one of cyclopentadienyl (Cp) ring H atoms and the O atom of a neighbouring molecule with a distance of 3.308 (3) Å between the donor and acceptor atoms. The interplanar angle between the Cp and benzene rings is 13.0 (4)°. There are also weak O-H and C-H interactions involving the unsubstituted Cp and the benzene ring, respectively.
