Since the discovery of biscyclopentadienyliron or ferrocene in 1950 numerous derivatives of this unique organometallic compound have been prepared and their properties studied connection with a program involving the synthesis of polymeric derivatives of ferrocene, it was of interest to investigate methods for the preparation of fluorine-containing ferrocene monomers and polymers Initially this involved the preparation and study of model compounds representative of new types of ferrocenes such as the hitherto unknown perfluoroalkylferrocenyl ketones 1,1- dihydroperfluoroalkylferrocenes and perfluoroalkylferrocenes. In this paper are reported some of the preliminary results obtained in the investigation of synthetic approaches to the perfluoroalkylferrocnyl ketones C5H5FeC 5H4CORf, as well as some observations and conclusions resulting from a study of the rather well-known Friedel-Crafts reaction with ferrocene.
