Metallocenes are compounds that consist of a metal atom, typically from the group of transition metals, and at least one cyclopentadienyl ligand. These compounds are of particular interest in organometallic chemistry.

Metallocene complexes, also known as metallocene compounds, have a structure in which the metal atom is located between two cyclopentadienyl ligands. These ligands are usually abbreviated as Cp. Metallocenes have remarkable structural and electronic properties, which makes them particularly interesting for various applications in catalysis and materials science.

In catalysis, metallocene catalysts are often used for the production of polyolefins. These catalysts can control the polymerisation reactions and produce high-quality polymers with defined properties.

In materials science, metallocenes are also being researched for the production of new materials with specific electronic, magnetic or optical properties.

Metallocenes help to deepen our understanding of organometallic compounds and offer a wide range of potential applications in various scientific and industrial fields.
