Abstract

Reaction of [Rh 3 (μ-CO) 35 -C 9 H 7 ) 3 ] with buta-1,3-diene, trans-penta-1,3-diene, isoprene, trans, trans-hexa-2,4-diene, cyclopentadiene, and cyclohexa-1,3-diene affords the stable complexes [Rh 2 (μ-CO) (μ-1,3-diene) (η 5 -C 9 H 7 ) 2 ]; an X-ray crystallographic study of the cyclohexa-1,3-diene complex shows that the diene is more weakly held than in mononuclear systems.
