Extremely soluble, briefly air-stable, and thermally more robust than expected are CeIV complexes such as 1 containing the Me3Si-substituted cycloocta-tetraene dianion as ligands. The metal atom in these complexes is sterically well shielded by an organic shell. The way is now free to investigate the reactivity of this class of compounds.
