Abstract

original image

The new compounds permethylcobaltocene and -nickelocene show some surprising reactions which are impossible in the case of the parent compounds. For example, as the first neutral 20-electron complex, permethyl-nick-elocene adds electrophiles R′X to form the novel salts (1), which are stable to air and water.
