New ferrocenecarboxylate ruthenium(II) complexes were obtained from the reaction of [RuClH(CO)(PPh3)3] with ferrocenecarboxylic acid or its sodium salt. The reaction of alkenyl complexes [Ru(O2C(C5H4)Fe(C5H 5))(CR′=CRH)(CO)(PPh3)2] with CO and catalytic synthesis of the phenylethyleneferrocenecarboxylic ester have been studied.
