Abstract

Abstract The anionic ruthenium and iron complexes Li[(η 5-C 5Me 5)M(CO) 2] (M=Ru ( 1-Ru), Fe ( 1-Fe)) were generated by deprotonation of the transition metal hydride (η 5-C 5Me 5)M(CO) 2H with n-BuLi in tetrahydrofuran (THF). The reaction proceeded at −45 °C immediately. Reactions of 1 with various electrophiles (Me 3SiCl, p Tol 2HSiCl, Me 2SiCl 2, MeSiCl 3, SiCl 4, Me 3SiSiMe 2Cl, and Ph 2GeCl 2) afforded the corresponding nucleophilic substitution products (η 5-C 5Me 5)M(CO) 2ER 3 (E=Si, Ge) via salt-elimination.
