Synthesis and Applications of Tricarbonyliron Complexes of Dendralenes

Toombs-Ruane, Henry; Osinski, Nik; Fallon, Thomas; Wills, Cindy; Willis, Anthony; Paddon-Row, Michael; Sherburn, Michael


[3]Dendralene and [4]dendralene are converted smoothly into tricarbonyliron complexes. The structures of four complexes analyzed by DFT and single-crystal X-ray analysis show that, in contrast to free hydrocarbons, complexed dendralenes prefer a roughly in-plane conformation. The complexes are stable towards Fe(CO)3 group migration up to 150 °C. The synthetic value of Fe(CO)3 complexation in the dendralene series is demonstrated through a variety of selective synthetic manipulations...[Show more]
