Alkali metal salts of pentaphenylcyclopentadienide Academic Article uri icon


  • Synthetic procedures leading to isolable alkali metal salts of pentaphenyl-cyclopentadienide are described. The Cs, K, Na, and Li salts have been prepared and characterized by IR, UV, 13C NMR, and by elemental analysis. The stability, structure, and potential utility of these alkali metal organometallic compounds are discussed. © 1982.
