Abstract : The 'sandwich' bonded (bis(pi-(3)-1,3-dicarbollyl)Fe(II))(-2) ion is protonated in strongly acidic media to form what may prove to be the analog of protonated ferrocene. This species readily reacts with dialkyl-sulfides to form B-substituted bis(dicarbollyl)iron(II) and -(III) species. Analogous reactions have been carried out employing bis(dicarbollyl)iron (III) and -cobalt(III) anions. The preparation, characterization and structures of these complexes are discussed. (Author)
