3. Application: Ferrocene powder has been used as energy-saving antismoke agent, antiknock agent, radiation absorber, heat stabilizer, light stabilizer. It has been applied to synthesize ammonia catalyst and rubber curing agent. In addition, it was replaced of toxic antiknock agent to prepare high-grade unleaded gasoline.

Uses:1) Fuel additives. Ferrocene and its derivatives are antiknock agents used in the fuel for petrol engines. They are safer than previously used tetraethyllead.

2) Solid Rocket Propellant. Ferrocene and related derivatives are used as powerful burn rate catalysts in ammonium perchlorate composite propellant.
3) As a ligand scaffold. Chiral ferrocenyl phosphines are employed as ligands for transition-metal catalyzed reactions. Some of them have found industrial applications in the synthesis of pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals.

4. Safety instructions: Low toxic. LD50(Rat)> 1320mg/kg; Mouse, oral: LD50> 832mg/kg.

5. Packing: Woven bag (lined with plastic bag), net weight: 25 kg/bag.

6. Storage: Sealed preservation. Store at cool and ventilate. Avoid sunlight and heat. The shelf life is 12 months after manufacturer date. It is still available if retest result is qualified after expire date

7. Transportation: Keep upright when transported. Avoid violent collision and exposure. Do not transport with strong oxidizers.
