Only two preparations of pentafluorophenylorganometallics by sulphur dioxide elimination reactions have been reported. Thermal decomposition of the S-sulphinato complex C6F5SO2Fe(π-C5H5)(CO)2 gives C6F5Fe(π-C5H5)(CO)21, and a pentaflurophenyliridium compound has been prepared by the reaction2:. IrCl(Ph3P)2N2 + C6F5SO2Cl→ C6F5IrCl2(Ph3P)2SO2 + N2 (1).
