Several cationic iron(II) allyloxy carbene complexes have been prepared from the corresponding iron vinylidenes {Fe(ή5-C5H5)(CO)[P(OCH3)3](C= CR1R2}+X” (X =BF4, OSO2CF3). These compounds have been deprotonated with KH and 18-crown-6 and thermally rearranged in situ to give the corresponding γ,δ-unsatu-rated iron acyl complexes in moderate yields.
