Copper(l) iodide mediated Ullmann-type coupling reactions of iodoferrocene and 1,1'-diiodoferrocene has been used to synthesize N-substituted ferrocenes that are difficult to obtain by classical methods. In this manner, a range of Fc-[N]-R-type compounds have been prepared in moderate to good yields.
