The measured inelastic neutron scattering vibrational spectrum of ferrocene, Fe(C5H5)(2), in the supercages of KY zeolite is compared with that of solid ferrocene. Only small differences between these spectra are observed. It is shown that these differences are compatible with those calculated by ab initio calculations taking account only of the geometry of the ferrocene and ignoring the molecular environment. We conclude that the ferrocene-zeolite interactions are rather weak, and comparable with the intermolecular interactions in solid ferrocene.
