This paper describes the preparation of a variety of 1′‐substituted iodoferrocenes from 1‐iodo‐1′‐(tri‐n‐butyltin)ferrocene by an electrophilic substitution of the tri‐n‐butyltin moiety with functionalized acylium and benzoylium species. Additionally, we demonstrate a Heck coupling protocol for these functionalized iodoferrocenes with ethenylferrocene.
