Abstract : The report discusses: Preparation of dicyanomethylenecarbene and/or metal complexes thereof; Preparation of tetracyanoallene; Reactions of hexacyanobutadiene and related compounds. Of particular interest was the isolation and characterization of the complex (C5H5)2Fe2(CO)3(C=C(CN)2), the first known derivative of dicyanomethylenecarbene. In addition, most reactions of the metal carbonyl anions NaM(CO)3C5H5(M=Mo and W), NaMn(CO)5, and NaFe(CO)2C5H5 with the polycyanovinyl chlorides (NC)2C=CHCl, (NC)2C=C(CN)Cl, and (NC)2C=CCl2 were found to give fair to good yields of the corresponding polycyanovinyl transition metal derivatives.
