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 ferrocene; kinetic resolution; planar chirality
