Abstract

Reaction of (S)-2-ferrocenyl-4-(1-methylethyl)oxazoline with [(CpIrCl2)-Ir-star](2) in benzonitrile with KPF6 and NaOH gave (eta(5)-(S)-2-(4-(1-methylethyl))oxazolinylcyclopentadienyl)(eta(5)-pentamethylcyclopentadienyl)-iridium(III) hexafluorophosphate (68%). This transformation of an iron-based into an iridium-based metallocene proceeds via the rearrangement, with loss of cyclopentadienyliron, of an intermediate cationic ferrocenyliridacycle.
