Decaphenylferrocene was obtained as an extremely insoluble, maroon microcrystalline solid by heating [(η5-C5Ph5)((η6-C6H5)C5Ph4)Fe], and was characterized by 57Fe Mossbauer spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, mass, electronic and vibrational spectroscopy, solid-state 13C n.m.r. spectroscopy and high-resolution X-ray powder diffraction, which showed it to be isostructural with decaphenylnickelocene.
