Plumbocene is an organometallic compound of lead. It is a member of the class of metallocenes. It is soluble in benzene, acetone, ether, and petroleum ether, and insoluble in water. Plumbocene is stable in cold water.[1]

Plumbocene is not commercially available. It may be synthesized by the reaction of sodium cyclopentadienide with a lead(II) source such as lead(II) nitrate[1] or lead(II) iodide.[2]

The decamethyl analog, Cp*2Pb, and the half-sandwich complexes, Cp*PbBF4 and Cp*PbCl, are known as well.[3]
