A series of novel 2-ferrocenyl-3,4-dihydropyrans were synthesized in good to excellent yields through three-component reaction of vinylferrocene, 1,3-dicarbonyl compound and formaldehyde near room temperature under catalyst-free conditions. The obtained ferrocenyl dihydropyrans can also react readily with indole in the presence of alum, providing a ring-opening product in high yield, and this result opens an effective way to access a new class of complex ferrocenyl derivatives.
