1,1′-Bis(trifluorovinyl)ferrocene is obtained in excellent yields from a Negishi type coupling reaction. Under certain redox conditions and in the presence of a suitable nucleophile, the highly reactive compound undergoes a transformation to fluorinated ferrocenophanes. Intra and intermolecular [2+2]-cycloaddition products are formed upon heating. © 2011 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
