Abstract: In the title compound, [Fe2(C5H5)2(C18H16O)]·CH2Cl2, the C=C bonds both adopt E conformations. In one ferrocenyl group, the five-membered rings are in a near-eclipsed conformation, whereas in the other they are mutually rotated by ca 21.5°. The central cyclohexanone ring adopts a sofa conformation. In the crystal, the dichloromethane solvent moleucle forms C-HO hydrogen bonds to the organometallic molecules to generate  chains of alternating solvent and organometallic species.
