The title compound, [Fe(2)(C(5)H(5))(2)(C(26)H(26)N(2))], was synthesized from a chiral diamine and ferrocenecarboxaldehyde and subsequent reduction with NaBH(4). It has two chiral centers which both exhibit an R configuration. Two ferrocene groups are present in the mol-ecular structure, with their cyclo-penta-dienyl ring planes showing an almost perpen… CONTINUE READING
