Research has been divided between studies on the infrared spectra of certain metal carbonyl complexes, and on the synthesis of new organosilicon- and organotincarbonylruthenium complexes. Both of these topics add to the knowledge of metal-metal bonds. Part I of this Report summarizes a study of the infrared spectra of pi-cyclopentadienyliron dicarbonyl compounds pi-C5H5FeCO2X, where X Cl, Br or I or MIVR3 where MIV Si, Ge or Sn, and R Et, Ph or Cl. The results are used to draw certain conclusions about the nature of the Fe-X bond. Part II of the Report describes the synthesis of new tin-ruthenium complexes of type R3Sn2RuCO4 and R10Sn4Ru2CO6. Part III gives an account of the preparation of silicon-ruthenium compounds R3SiRuCO42, particularly Me3SiRuCO42. The latter complex has proved to be an important intermediate for further syntheses. The work on the silicon-ruthenium complexes is still at a preliminary stage and further work needs to be done. Author
