The cationic terminal borylene complex [(η 5 -C 5 H 5 )(CO) 2 FeB(η 5 -C 5 Me 5 )][AlCl 4 ] has been isolated from the reaction of [(η 5 -C 5 H 5 )(CO) 2 FeB(Cl)(η 1 -C 5 Me 5 )] with AlCl 3 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. © The Royal Society of Chemistry 2006.
