Abstract : The patent describes the preparation of two new ferrocenyl-containing compounds, namely, 4,4-diferrocenyl-1-pentanol and 3,3-diferrocenylbutyl isocyanate. The functional groups, hydroxy and isocyanate, are reactive with common propellant binders. The compounds have high iron content per functional group. The presence of two ferrocenyl groups on the same carbon atom having no hydrogen causes the compounds to be highly resistant to oxidation. The compounds are soluble in hydrocarbon solvents.
