Mechanism of the fluxional behaviour in (1–5-η-cycloheptadienyl)-(1–5-η-cycloheptatrienyl)iron


Evidence for a 1.2-shift mechanism of the 1-5-η-cycloheptatrienyl moiety with respect to the central iron atom of the title compound is presented together with absolute assignments of the ^(13)C n.m.r. chemical shifts of the C_(7)H_(7) ring. A low-temperature rocking motion of both rings can be frozen out at -70 °C.
