Ring opening of 2,3-bis(hydroxymethyl)methylenecyclopropanes with [Fe2(CO)9]; the molecular structure of a 1,4-diene complex of iron(0), tricarbonyl-η4-(3-methylene-4-vinyldihydrofuran-2(3H)- one) iron

Abstract

trans- or cis-2,3-Bis(hydroxymethyl)methylenecyclopropanes react with [Fe2(CO)9] to yield ring-opened products containing the 3-methylene-4-vinyldihydrofuran-2(3H)-one ligand; η2- η4-complexes of this ligand have been characterised, the latter by X-ray crystallography.
