The monomeric complex (η5-C5H5)Ni(Me2Im)SnPr synthesized by the reaction of the [(η5‑C5H5)Ni(μ-SnPr)]2 dimer with dimethylimidazolium carboxylate is rapidly oxidized in air to form the sulfone complex (η5-C5H5)Ni(Me2Im)S(O)2nPr (I), while its reaction with the adduct W(CO)5(ТHF) affords (η5-C5H5)Ni(Me2Im)(μ-SnPr)W(CO)5 (II). A new heterometallic complex (η5‑C5H5)Ni(Me2Im)TeI2Fc (III) containing the terminal telluroferrocenyl fragment is obtained by the reaction of the known nickel carbene complex (η5-C5H5)Ni(Me2Im)I with FcTeI (Fc = (η5-C5H4)Fe(η5-C5H5)). The complexes synthesized are studied by X-ray structure analysis (CIF files CCDC nos. 1835574, 1835573, and 1835572 for compounds I, II, and III, respectively).
