Abstract

The reaction between [V(cp)2(CO)] and N2O quantitatively gave [{V(cp)2}2n(CO3)n] where n = 1 or 2. This is analogous to the reaction of [Ti(cp)2(CO)2] with N2O which gave [{Ti(cp)2}4(CO3)2]. Derivatives of VIII such as [V(cp)2X] (X = Cl or I) or [V(cp)2(CO)2]+ did not react with N2O, although [V(cp)2X] did react with O2. The oxidising properties of N2O are discussed, as are the properties of [{V(Cp)2}2n(CO3)n].
