Watson, R. T.; Basinger, J.; Min, E. Y.; Wagenknecht, P. S. Synthesis of a Lewis acid bearing cyclopentadienyl ligand and its tricarbonylmanganese(I) complex. J. Organomet. Chem. 2005, 690, 2159-2162.
The synthesis of a bimetallic compound comprising a Lewis acidic organochlorostannane and a transition metal carbonyl is reported. The target complex, (CO)3Mn(Î·5-C5H4(CH2)3SnMe2Cl)], 2, is prepared in four steps. The final step involves an exchange reaction between (CO)3Mn(Î·5-C5H4(CH2)3SnMe3)], 1, and SnMe2Cl2. Infrared spectroscopy demonstrates no interaction between the Lewis acid and lone pair on the carbonyl oxygen.
