Abstract

A new mild (0°C, 1 atm P) and high yield (70%) synthesis of [V(CO)6]- by the sodium anthracenide mediated reductive carbonylation of VCl3(THF)3 is presented. This same procedure is also shown to provide the first conventional, non-photolytic route to [V(PF3)6]-, a remarkably stable substance. Corresponding sodium naphthalenide reductions provide much lower yields of these vanadates.
