Abstract

Abstract The reaction of the transition metal compounds MCl n MCl n TiCl 4;VCl 4; CrCl 2 or 3; MoOCl 3, WCl 6 and FeCl 3 with magnesium and tetrahydrofuran yields organometallic cluster compounds. These compounds, upon hydrolysis with H 2O,D 2O, DCl and NaOD, produce a mixture of hydrocarbons and dihydrogen. The composition of the liberated gas suggests that the reaction between the reduced clusters M x(x ⩾ 2) and THF gives metallocyclic compounds, which then undergo α or β C—C cleavage, hydrolysis and hydride elimination
