Abstract
     A variety of methods, conventional and non-conventional, are used in attempts to prepare the compounds (?6-corannulene)M(CO)3 (M = Cr, Mo, W), all unsuccessful. Conventional methods are also utilized in attempts to prepare the compound [CpFe(?6-corannulene)]PF6, but these result in mixtures of cationic CpFe(arene) complexes containing partially hydrogenated corannulene; similar results have been reported for other polyaromatic hydrocarbons. DFT calculations on the compound (?6-corannulene)Cr(CO)3 suggest that the (?6-corannulene)-Cr linkage is only a few kcal/mol weaker than the corresponding bond in (?6-benzene)Cr(CO)3, implying that failures in syntheses arise from kinetic, not thermodynamic problems.
