Selective dimerization and hydroformylation of 2-ferrocenylpropene has been shown to take place in the presence of platinum- and rhodium-catalysts, respectively. The cyclic dimerization proceeds selectively by a homoannular pathway. The hydroformylation gives the less-branched formyl isomer with more than 90% regioselectivity. Some optical induction is observed in both reactions.
