X substituted anilines (X=3-NO2, 4-NO2, 2-Me, 3-Me and 4-Me) have been shown to act as nucleophiles to the organometallic cation [(Fe(CO)3 (1-5- ç - 2-MeOC6H6)] BF4and [(Fe(CO)3 (1-5- ç -C6-H7)] BF4.This paper presents the nucleophilic addition of the substituted anilines to the dienyl ring of the organometallic complex to give new anilinocyclohexa-1,3-diene iron tricarbonyl complexes. The reaction which takes place at room temperature gives Products which were isolated and characterized.
