Abstract:

The compounds Me2GaC5H5 and MeGaC5H52 have been prepared by ligand redistribution reactions between appropriate stoichiometric quantities of GaC5H53 and GaMe3. Both compounds have been demonstrated by 1H NMR spectral studies to be unstable in solution and to form symmetrized products by ligand redistribution reactions. Thus, Me2GaC5H5 forms GaMe3 and MeGaC5H52 as primary products whereas MeGaC5H52 decomposes to GaC5H53 and Me2Ga5H5. The compound Me2GaC5H5 has also been shown to serve as a cyclopentadienyl transfer reagent as it reacts with FeC12 to form FeC5H52 and Me2GaC1.
