The work discussed in the report is involved with an attempt to explain discrepancies between an earlier vibrational assignment and recent studies of ferrocene, and its derivatives. Low temperature infrared and Raman work has been carried out showing some new and interesting features. The Raman study of a single crystal of ferrocene showed useful polarization features and is used to compare and contrast the original assignment with its alternatives. The infrared spectrum of the solid shows definite evidence for a breakdown in the selection rules. Factor group splitting is of the order of 2cm. Force field calculations and the preparation and spectra of any related compounds considered to be appropriate are also discussed herein. Author
