Fulvene



Fulvene is one of several hydrocarbons with the same formula as benzene, C6H6. Fulvenes include the derivatives of this simple hydrocarbon, which itself is rarely encountered.[1] Thiele is credited with discovering the scope of the reaction between cyclopentadiene and aldehydes and ketones that affords the brightly coloured fulvene derivatives.[2] Most fulvenes are prepared by the reactions starting from cyclopentadiene or sodium cyclopentadienyl.[3]

Additional recommended knowledge

 


2,3,4,5-Tetramethylfulvene, abbreviated Me4Fv, is a relatively common ligand in organometallic chemistry. It typically results from the deprotonation of cationic pentamethylcyclopentadienyl complexes.[4]
