  • n. any of a class of metallocenes containing an iron atom between two cyclopentadienyl rings; especially the simplest of the class bis-cyclopentadienyl iron


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • Both diagrams refer to the same compounds, but the depicted graph representations are not identical. b 2D diagram of ferrocene, which, like all organometallic compounds, is difficult to represent with classical chemoinformatics approaches.

  • Dropping this 'two-atom bond' representation in favor of something that better describes compounds like ferrocene, like the Dietz and Bauerschmidt approaches, has the unfortunate disadvantage of loosing compatibility with graph theory algorithms.

  • Now, you will note that this approach does not exactly follow Rich's FlexMol examples: the skipped atom pair concepts in the FlexMol version of ferrocene.

  • PEG arms will enable the bound-ferrocene heads to access the enzyme prosthetic site and thus to play the role of enzyme-mediator.
