Abstract

Fe(CO)5 and a catalytic amount of sodium borohydride react with cycloheptatrienes in protic solvents to yield the corresponding tricarbonyl(eta 4-1,3-diene)iron complexes in a one-pot procedure, which has been found to be particularly efficient for the synthesis of the useful tricarbonyl(cyclo-heptadiene)iron complex.
