The first ferrocene-fused organometallic compounds derived from the buckybowl sumanene (C21H12) are presented. Both compounds, sumanenylferrocene and 1,1′-disumanenylferrocene, have been synthesized by Negishi-type cross-coupling of iodosumanene and were studied crystallographically. Sumanenylferrocenes form unique packing motifs, which are both different from those of their corannulene congeners and sumanene itself.
