Abstract

Reaction of (S)-2-ferrocenyl-4-(1-methylethyl)oxazoline with [Cp*IrCl2]2 in benzonitrile with KPF6 and NaOH gave (η5-(S)-2-(4-(1-methylethyl))oxazolinylcyclopentadienyl)(η5-pentamethylcyclopentadienyl)iridium(III) hexafluorophosphate (68%). This transformation of an iron-based into an iridium-based metallocene proceeds via the rearrangement, with loss of cyclopentadienyliron, of an intermediate cationic ferrocenyliridacycle.
