Cyclopentadienyl is an organic compound with the chemical formula (CH)•
5 (also written C
5). Cyclopentadienyl is closely related to cyclopentadiyne. Cyclopentadienyl has five carbon atoms bonded together in a pentagonal planar ring, all five of which are bonded to individual hydrogen atoms. Cyclopentadienyl is chemically aromatic and shows equal bond lengths between carbon atoms in the ring.
Cyclopentadienyl is known in organometallic chemistry where it forms cyclopentadienyl complexes.
