Abstract: The present review describes some of our recent applications of tricarbonyliron-diene chemistry to organic synthesis. It focuses on the selective synthesis of tricarbonyliron-diene complexes including the asymmetric catalytic complexation of prochiral cyclohexa-1,3-dienes, the enantioselective synthesis of carbazole-3,4-quinone alkaloids, and the iron-mediated synthesis of corannulene and yohimbane alkaloids.

*Lecture presented at the 38th IUPAC Congress/World Chemistry Congress 2001, Brisbane, Australia, 1-6 July 2001. Other presentations are published in this issue, pp.1033-1145.
