The structure of 1,1′,2,2′,3,4,4′,5′-tetrakis(trimethylene)ferrocene has been determined by X-ray diffraction. This compound forms prismatic crystals of monoclinic space group P22/c and four molecules in the unit cell with a 8.649(4), b 21.623(2), c 9.120(1) Å and β 107.21(3)°. The structure was solved from three dimensional Patterson and Fourier synthesis, and was refined by least squares. The two cyclopentadienyl rings are eclipsed and the dihedral angle between the rings is 11.1°. The iron-carbon distances ranged from 1.997(2) to 2.047(2) Å.
