Abstract Several novel zirconium(iv) complexes with the chelating oxygen-containing cyclopentadienyl ligand, tetramethyl(2-methoxyethyl)cyclopentadiene, have been synthesized. [η5:η1-Tetra-methyl(2-methyl)cyclopentadienyl]trichlorozirconium (2), bis[η5-tetramethyl(2-methoxyethyl)cyclopentadienyl]dichlorozirconium (3), [η5-pentamethylcyclopentadienyl][η5-tetra-methyl(2-methoxyethyl)cyclopentadienyl]dichlorozirconium (4), and [η5-tetra-methyl(2-methylthioethyl)cyclopentadienyl][η5-tetramethyl(2-methoxyethyl)-cyclopentadienyl]dichlorozirconium (5) have been prepared from the corresponding lithium cyclopentadienide (l). The crystal structure of cyclopentadienyl complex2 has been established by X-ray analysis. The coordination O→Zr bond in compound2 exists both in the crystalline state and in solutions. No coordination of this type was observed in complexes3–5. Synthesized complexes2–5 are discussed in comparison with their sulfur-containing analogs.
