The title compound, [Fe2(C5H5)2(C30H22N2O2)], a 2:1 product of the reaction of 2-ferrocenylbenzoic acid and 2-amino-4-methylpyridine, forms a twisted molecular structure in the solid state due to steric effects from the two benzene rings ortho-substituted with ferrocenyl and carbonyl-derived groups. A short intramolecular C-H...[pi] interaction is observed involving a substituted [eta]5-C5H4 ring and an ortho H atom of the benzene ring on the opposite side of the molecule. In the crystal structure, there are no classical hydrogen bonds: interactions comprise a short C6-H...[pi](C6) interaction involving substituted benzene rings and two C-H...O=C interactions per molecule.
