‘Molecular rocket reaction’ was confirmed in modified metallocene-/?-cyclodextrin (CD) inclusion compound for the first time. Energy dependence of the reaction was examined in the range between 100 eV and several tens keV. The curve revealed at least an order of 0.5% of rocket survival probability below 126 eV and a nearly constant value (-0.2%) above 130 eV. The energy dependence curve was discussed in relation to those in metal β-diketonates, phtalocyanines, metallocenes and normal metallocene-β-CD inclusion compounds.
