Abstract: There has been a recent renaissance in the organometallic
chemistry of pentalene, following the discovery of the first complexes
incorporating pentalene h8-ligated
to a single metal center. This short review outlines recent work in
the author's laboratory on the preparation of silylated pentalene ligands
and the subsequent synthesis of novel, monometallic, and bimetallic
pentalene sandwich and half-sandwich complexes of the f- and d-block
* Lecture presented at the XIXth International Conference
on Organometallic Chemistry (XIX ICOMC) , Shanghai, China, 23-28 July
2000. Other presentations are published in this issue, pp. 205-376.
