1-Ferrocenyl(methyl)phenylsilane (I) was prepared by silylation of ferrocene at low temperature. Mono- and diacetylenic compounds of silyferrocene were prepared by the interaction of chloroferrocenylsilane with mono- and dilithium acetylenic derivatives, respectively. It has been found that, catalytic hydrogenation of the prepared acetylenic compounds seem to be totally determined by steric considerations.
