Two synthetic strategies to the construction of heterobimetallic fulvalene (η55-C10H8) complexes are reported. The first is based on the previously described monometallic ring-slippage products of (η5:η5-C10H8)Mo2-(CO)8and (η5:η5-C10H8)Ru2(CO)4that undergo recomplexation with a variety of metal carbonyls. The second utilizes a potentially iterative synthetic organic strategy in which cyclopentadienyl anion is subjected to an alkano-ylation–ring closure sequence that assembles a new attached cyclopentadiene unit.
