Conclusions

  1. 1.

    The reaction of iron dodecacarbonyl with 2, 4, 6-trimethyl-1, 4-cyclohexadiene gives a mixture of isomeric iron tricarbonyl 5-endo-H- and 5-exo-H-1, 3,5-trimethyl-1,3-cyclohexadienes.

  2. 2.

    The treatment of this mixture with trityl fluoborate gave 2,4, 6-trimethylcyclohexadienyliron tricarbonyl tetrafluoborate.

  3. 3.

    The reaction of 1,5,5-trimethyl-3-methylene-1-cyclohexene with iron dodecacarbonyl gives iron tricarbonyl 1,3,5,5-tetramethyl-1, 3-cyclohexadiene, which practically does not react with trityl fluoborate.
