Abstract: The title complex, [Fe2(C5H5)2(C18H20O)], formed by dehydration of 1-ferrocenylbut-3-en-1-ol, crystallizes as a racemic compound. The central C-O-C fragment, in which the C atoms are the chiral centers, is characterized by an angle of 116.26 (10)° at the O atom. One ferrocene group shows a staggered conformation whereas the other shows an eclipsed conformation.
