Direct synthesis of (η6-arene)-tricarbonylchromium complexes by arene displacement from tricarbonyl(η5-1-methylpyrrole)chromium(0)

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Arene displacement from the title complex occurs under unprecedented mild conditions in neutral media to afford (η6-arene)tricarbonylchromium complexes. The process is most effective with heteroaromatic compounds: the first synthesis of a tricarbonyl(η6-quinoline)chromium complex and the diastereoselective preparation of a (η6-indole) complex derived from L-tryptophan are reported as representative examples.
