Reaction of cyclopropylcarbene-molybdenum complexes and alkynes leads to cycloheptadienones. The conditions for this reaction are considerably milder than those for the corresponding tungsten complexes.

Reaction of Metal-Carbene Complexes with Cyclobutenediones: The First General C-C Bond Insertion Reaction for Fischer Carbene Complexes
Zora, Metin (American Chemical Society (ACS), 1993-01-01)
Alkylcarbene-chromium complexes react with cyclobutenediones to give 2-alkoxy-4-cyclopentene-1,3-diones in moderate yield, accompanied by varying amounts of 4-cyclopentene-1,3-dione derivatives which result from reduction of the initial product by the chromium byproduct. The reaction is general for a variety of cyclobutenedione derivatives with alkoxy, alkyl, or aryl substituents. The major products of the reaction between arylcarbene complexes and cyclobutenediones are 5-alkylidenefuranone derivatives. A m...
Reaction of ferrocenylcarbene complexes of Cr, Mo and W with alkynes: Synthesis of ferrocenylcyclobutenones, ferrocenylfurans and ferrocenylketoesters
Zora, Metin (Elsevier BV, 2001-07-09)
Ferrocenylcarbene complexes of Cr, Mo and W react with alkynes to produce cyclobutenones, furans and/or ketoesters. The reaction is quite sensitive to the substituents of the alkyne, regardless of the identity of the metal. Cyclobutenones are formed only in the reactions of diphenylacetylene, a rare occurrence for metal carbene complexes. Ketoesters are secondary reaction products and result From oxidation of furan derivatives during the course of the reaction and/or silica-gel chromatography.
Preparation of seven-membered rings by the reaction of cyclopropylcarbene-tungsten and molybdenum complexes with alkynes
Herndon, James W.; Zora, Metin; Patel, Paren P.; CHATTERJEE, Gautam; Matasi, Julius J.; Tumer, Seniz U. (1993-01-01)
The reaction between alkynes and cyclopropylcarbene-tungsten and molybdenum complexes has been examined. Depending upon the conditions of the reaction, either cycloheptadienones or furanones are obtained. The scope, limitation, and mechanistic rationale for observed selectivities are discussed.

Spectroelectrochemical investigations of pyrimidine-2-thionato-bridged binuclear platinum(III) complexes
Ozbek, Ozge; ÖZALP YAMAN, Şeniz; Özkan, İlker; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; İŞÇİ, HÜSEYİN (2014-05-28)
The electrochemical behavior of the binuclear platinum(III-III) complexes [Pt-2(C4H3N2S)(4)X-2] (C4H3N2S- = pyrimidine-2-thionate; X- = Cl--,Cl- Br--,Br- I-) have been studied by cyclic voltammetry and insitu spectroelectrochemistry in an acetonitrile-tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate solventelectrolyte couple. An irreversible metal based reduction appears during the cathodic scan for each of the three complexes. The changes in UV-Vis spectra observed in-situ during the reductive electrolysis indicate th...
