Abstract: Since the serendipitous discovery of ferrocene by Pauson and Kealy in 1951, it has become one of the most important structures in Organic Chemistry. Lately, kinetic resolution has emerged as a useful tool for the synthesis of planar chiral ferrocenes. This review aims to cover and discuss the development of this topic.
Keywords: ferrocene; kinetic resolution; planar chirality
