Abstract

ortho-Substituted aryllithium and aryl Grignard reagents react with (benzene)manganesetricarbonyl cation (1) to give good yields of the expected ring adducts. The presence of the ortho substituent(s) appears to be necessary for the satisfactory outcome of the reaction with aryllithiums. This reactivity opens up the possibility of preparing novel heterocyclic structures via the initial reaction of 1 with functionalised metallated arenes.
