Abstract: The isolobal displacement methodology for the synthesis of biscyclopentadienyl-bridged transition-metal cluster complexes has been developed. This methodology involves various isolobal displacement reactions between tetrahedral cluster substrates and Mo/W-containing isolobal reagents, leading to a series of linear biscyclopentadienyl-bridged cluster complexes and cyclic biscyclopentadienyl-bridged cluster crown ethers, respectively.
