The lowest-energy structures for CpM(C4H4M)Cp (M = Fe, Co, or Ni) are triplet-, singlet-, and triplet-spin-state structures, respectively, with formal metal–metal single bonds for the Fe and Co derivatives and no significant Ni···Ni interaction for the Ni derivative. The lowest-energy structures for the heterometallic derivatives CpM(C4H4M′)Cp (M, M′ = Fe, Co, or Ni) are always the lowest-spin-state structure with the electron-richest metal atom in the metallacyclic ring.
