Abstract: The oxidation reaction of ferrocene derivatives is important because of its biological applications. The reactivity is affected by metal ions. However, it is not clear how to interact the metal ions with the ferrocenes. In this paper, the oxidation reactivity of (o-acetylphenyl)ferrocene was investigated in the view of solvent effect and the addition effect of salicylic acid. Furthermore, the measurement of the relaxation time was carried out. As a result, Al 3+ would strongly interact with (o-acetylphenyl)ferrocene so that prevent the mobility of the acetyl group.
