Abstract: In the title ferrocene derivative, [Fe(C5H5)(C9H8NO)], the dihedral angle between the ene­nitrile group and the substituted cyclo­penta­dienyl ring is 71.2 (1)°. The cyclopentadienyl rings of the ferrocene moiety are arranged in an eclipsed conformation. The hy­droxy group, and the corresponding methine H atom, are disordered over two sets of sites with site-occupancy factors of 0.744 (4) and 0.256 (4). An intra­molecular C-H...O close contact is observed. In the crystal, O-H...N hydrogen bonds form a C(6) chain along [100].
