Reaction of [IrCp*Cl-2](2) with ferrocenylimines (Fc=NAr, Ar=Ph, p-MeOC6H4) results in ferrocene C-H activation and the diastereoselective synthesis of half-sandwich iridacycles of relative configuration S-p*,R-Ir*. Extension to (S)-2-ferrocenyl-4-(1-methylethyl)oxazoline gave highly diastereoselective control over the new elements of planar chirality and metal-based pseudo-tetrahedral chirality, to give both neutral and cationic half-sandwich iridacycles of absolute configuration S-c,S-p,R-Ir. Substitution reactions proceed with retention of configuration, with the planar chirality controlling the metal-centred chirality through an iron-iridium interaction in the coordinatively unsaturated cationic intermediate.
