Acylation of 4-bromo- and 4-cyano-4′-ferrocenylbiphenyl with alkanoyl chlorides afforded the corresponding 1-acyl-1′-biphenylylferrocenes in ∼20% yields. X-ray diffraction study of the above-mentioned bromo derivative and 1-(4′-cyanobiphenyl-4-yl)-1′-((S)-3-methylpentanoyl)ferrocene demonstrated that these ferrocenylbiphenyl derivatives crystallize in noncentrosymmetric space groups.
