Formation and X-ray crystal structures of the four-membered metallacycles [Rh(CH2CMe2CH2)(η5-C 5Me5)(PPh3)] and [Ir(CH2SiMe2CH2)(η5-C 5Me5)(PPh3)] The interaction of [RhCl2(η5-C5Me5) (PPh3)] with Mg(CH2CMe3)Cl in pentane gives the rhodacyclo butane [Rh(CH2)(η5-C5Me5)(PPh 3)] (2). The analogous reaction of [MCl2(η5-C5Me5)(PPh 3)] (M = Rh or Ir) with Mg(CH2SiMe3)Cl allows the isolation of the dialkyl derivatives [M(CH2SiMe3)2(η5-C 5Me5)(PPh3)].

The mechanism of formation of the metallacyclobutane derivatives is discussed. The X-ray crystal structures of (2) and (6) have been determined.
