The application of ab initio, density functional theory and molecular mechanical methods to the modelling of metallocenes, particularly ferrocene, is reviewed. Approaches to the representation of the metal-ring pi-bonding in molecular mechanics and the quality of computed results from ab initio and density functional theory serve to illustrate the utility of modelling studies in organometallic chemistry.
