Highly diastereospecific syntheses (de ≥ 94%) of (η-arene)Cr(CO)3 complexes are effected via the group-selective deprotonation of complexes bearing a chiral benzylic directing group. The major diastereomers prepared by this technique are the opposite of those formed in face-selective diastereospecific complexation reactions.
