2008_25/2008Mo-Catalyzed Cross-Metathesis Reaction of Propynylferrocene (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 25/2008)

The cover picture shows the reaction scheme for the cross-metathesis of (prop-1-yn-1-yl)ferrocene with substituted propynes effected by catalysts generated from [Mo(CO)6] and halophenols, situated on a background full of typical ferrocene, autumn-like colors. The metathesis reaction affords good yields of unsymmetric ferrocenyl alkynes, thus offering a new alternative approach toward their preparation. Also shown are the crystal structure of methyl 4-[(ferrocenyl)ethynyl]benzoate and the orbital diagram of its solid-state π···π stacked dimer as calculated by DFT methods. A survey of various substrates and catalysts, results of X-ray structure analysis and DFT calculations as well as electrochemical data for a series of (phenylethynyl)ferrocenes substituted at the phenyl ring are discussed in the article by M. Kotora, P. Štepnička et al. on p. 3911 ff.
