The title compounds, [Fe(C5H5)(C14H13O2)] and [Fe(C5H5)- (C15H15O2)], respectively, contain the ferrocenyl 5(C5H4) and phenylene ±C6H4± rings in a nearly coplanar arrangement, with interplanar angles of 6.88 (12) and 10.5 (2), respectively. Molecules of the ethyl ester form dimers through 5(C5H5)CÐ H O C hydrogen bonds, with graph set R22 (20), and, together with Csp3ÐH (C5H5) interactions, generate a one-dimensional column (irregular ladder). Molecules of the isopropyl ester aggregate through 5(C5H5)CÐH (C6H4) interactions.
