Abstract : Etch pits were obtained on the surfaces of ferrocene single crystals, which were grown from solution of benzene and ferrocene, by two methods: simple evaporation in air and, etching in methyl alcohol. For each sample, the etch pit density (N) which indicates the number of dislocations in the crystals, was determined on the (001) surface of the crystals, and the resistivity was measured in a direction perpendicular to this face. The resistivity is found to be greater for samples with greater etch pit density, and may be expressed as resistivity = AN (3.3), where A is a constant. (Author)
