Bulk synthesis of octa- and nonamethylfluorene (Flu '' H and Flu*H) and the characterization of the organometallic derivatives Flu*SnMe3, [(FeCp)(2)Flu*H][PF6](2), and [(FeCp)(2)Flu '' H][PF6](2)

Abstract:

The large-scale synthesis of two highly methylated fluorene ligands is reported, and the synthesis and characterization of three organometallic derivatives are reported. Starting with 1,2,3,4-tetramethylbenzene, 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8-octa- and 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9-nonamethylfluorene (Flu"H and Flu*H) have been synthesized in overall yields of above 50%. Both fluorenes may be deprotonated at the 9 position to yield useful organometallic synthons; the Sn derivative, Flu*SnMe3, is synthesized using this ...
