Host-guest interactions of ferrocene in KY zeolite were investigated using muon spin relaxation (muSR). Temperature-dependent measurements enable us the determination of the activation parameters for the low energy dynamic processes of,the encapsulated ferrocene. A comparison between the pSR results and the earlier neutron measurements illustrates the advantage of the former technique for probing the lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO).
