Organometallic pentalene complexes*

F. Geoffrey N. Cloke

The Chemistry Laboratory, CPES, University of Sussex, Brighton BN1 9QJ, UK

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 elements.

* 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.
