Infrared spectroscopic evidence for photochemical generation of the metallocenes [(η-C5H5)2M](M = Mo or W) in low-temperature matrices

Abstract

U.v. photolysis of [(η-C5H5)2WH2], [(η-C5H5)2WD2], [(η-C5H5)2WCO], or [(η-C5H5)2W(CH3)H] in an argon matrix at 10 K leads to a common product identified by i.r. spectroscopy as [(η-C5H5)2W], and similarly photolysis of [(η-C5H5)2MoH2] or [(η-C5H5)2MoCO] affords [(η-C5H5)2Mo]; trapping experiments with a CO matrix show that the elimination of H2 from [(η-C5H5)2-MH2](M = Mo or W) is close to concerted.
