Ferrocene carboxylic acid 2-cyclohexa-1,4-dienyl-ethyl ester (1) is prepared from ferrocene carboxylic acid and 2-cyclohexa-1,4-dienyl-ethanol. This diene reacts with RuCl3•nH2O in refluxing ethanol to afford quantitatively [Ru(Fc-arene)Cl2]2 (2) (Fc-arene=ferrocene carboxylic acid phenethyl ester). The dinuclear complex 2...
