Charging up the iron in ferrocene salts Ferrocene is the archetype of the sandwich compounds, so called because a metal atom is inserted between two carbon rings. The elucidation of ferrocene's structure was pivotal to the development of organometallic chemistry during the mid-20th century. The ease with which the iron in the center of the molecule can toggle between the +2 and +3 oxidation states has made the compound a common electrochemical standard. Malischewski et al. report the synthesis… 

Isolation and electronic structures of derivatized manganocene, ferrocene and cobaltocene anions

A family of isostructural 3d metallocenates has been isolated that consists of a manganocene, a cobaltocene and a high-spin ferrocene anion stabilized by cyclopentadienyl ligands bearing bulky aliphatic groups.

Revealing the Structure of Transition Metal Complexes of Formaldoxime.

Electronic structure of [M(tacn)(tfo)]+ cations was studied by XPS, NMR, cyclic (CV) and differential pulse (DPV) voltammetries, Mössbauer spectroscopy, and DFT calculations and showed unusual stabilization of high-valent metal ion by tfo3- ligand.
