Abstract

The alkali metal reductions of a series of monomeric and dimeric cyclopentadienyl-substituted metal carbonyls in hexamethylphosphoramide provide principally C5H5V(CO)32- from C5H5V(CO)4, Mn(CO)43- from C5H5Mn(CO)3, Co(CO)4- from C5H5Co(CO)2, and C5H5M(CO)y- from corresponding [C5H5M(CO)y]2, where M = Mo, Fe and Ni for y = 3, 2 and 1, respectively. The spectral and chemical properties of many of these reduced species are described.
