Abstract

Ferrocene was discovered in 1951, [1] and has attracted much attention since the early 1970s. Due to the unique structure and aromatic characters of ferrocene, ferrocene-based polymers and ferrocene-based derivatives have been used in various applications, such as the burning rate catalysts, [2] amperometric biosensors, as well as carbon monoxide sensors.

Ferrocene was discovered in 1951 [1], and has attracted much attention since the early 1970s. Due to the unique structure and aromatic characters of ferrocene, ferrocene-based polymers and ferrocene-based derivatives have been used in various applications, such as the burning rate catalysts [2], amperometric biosensors, as well as carbon monoxide sensors [3]. Moreover, these can also be used in the construction of optical logic devices [3]. However, more and more applications of ferrocene-based derivatives, polymers and hydrogels are being discovered.
