Recent examples on the functionalization of the ferrocene core by means of cross-coupling reactions are reported in this review. Several methods are discussed including Negishi, Suzuki and Stille couplings for ferrocene-aryl bond formation and Sonogashira reaction for ferrocene-alkyne coupling. The properties in material science and asymmetric catalysis of the prepared ferrocenyl compounds are briefly discussed.
Keywords: Cross-coupling, palladium, ferrocene, material chemistry, asymmetric catalysis
