Reductive complexation of cycloheptatrienes by iron pentacarbonyl and catalytic sodium borohydride

Abstract

Fe(CO)5 and a catalytic amount of sodium borohydride react with cycloheptatrienes in protic solvents to yield the corresponding tricarbonyl(η4-1,3-diene)iron complexes in a one-pot procedure, which has been found to be particularly efficient for the synthesis of the useful tricarbonyl(cycloheptadiene)iron complex.
