Abstract

The complex (η5-C5H5)Ir(η4-C6H6) reacts with Grubbs' catalyst to give a novel polyacetylene consisting of cyclopentadienyliridium bound s-cis butadiene moieties separated by C[double bond, length as m-dash]C linkages. A crystal structure of the pentamethylcyclopentadienyl analog establishes a strong structural analogy with norbornadiene, a classical ROMP monomer.
