The cationic terminal borylene complex [(η5-C 5H5)(CO)2FeB(η5-C 5Me5)][AlCl4] has been isolated from the reaction of [(η5-C5H5)(CO) 2FeB(Cl)(η1-C5Me5)] with AlCl3 and on the basis of X-ray crystallographic data, spectroscopic data and a DFT calculation it is concluded that the B→Fe bond order is one.
