The title compound, [Fe(C₅H₅)(C₁₂H₁₀NO₃S)], was synthesized from ferrocenecarboxylic acid and methyl 2-aminothiophene-3-carboxylate in modest yield. The substituted ring system is essentially planar through the amidothienylcarboxylate moiety, η⁵-(C₅H₄)CONH(C₄H₂S)CO₂Me, with the amido unit at an angle of 3.60 (7)° to the five-atom thienyl group, which is oriented at an angle of 3.17 (7)° to the ester moiety. The primary hydrogen bond is an intramolecular N-H...O=Ccarboxylate interaction [N...O 2.727 (2) Å], and the main intermolecular hydrogen bond involves a thienyl carboxylate and the carboxylate of a symmetry-related molecule [C...O 3.443 (3) Å].
