Conclusions

  1. 1.

    The exo-ethyl, exo-benzyl-, and exo-cyclopentadienyl-cyclohexadienylcyclopentadienyl derivatives of iron were obtained for the first time by the reaction of benzene(cyclopentadienyl)iron fluoborate with ethyllithium, benzylmagnesium chloride, and cyclopentadienylsodium.

     
  2. 2.

    At low temperatures (−25°C) in ether the aliphatic or ganolithium compounds (CH3Li, C2H5Li) do not enter into the above described reaction, but instead effect the one-electron reduction of the [C6H6FeC5H5]+] cation to the electroneutral C6H6FeC5H5 π-complex.

     
  3. 3.

    Phenyllithium, phenylmagnesium bromide, benzylmagnesium chloride, and cyclopentadienylsodium are incapable of reducing [C6H6FeC5H5]+ to C6H6FeC5H5.
