Chemistry of o-xylidene-metal complexes. Part 4. Stereospecific synthesis of the early transition metal meso-metallacycles: [M{CH(SiMe3)C6H4CHSiMe 3-o}(η-C5H5)2] (M = Ti, Zr, Hf, or Nb), their reversible one-electron reduction (M = Ti, Zr, Hf, or Nb) and oxidation (M = Nb); and the X-ray crystal structure of the zirconium complex

Stereospecific synthesis of the early transition metal meso-metallacycles: [M{CH(SiMe3)C6H4CHSiMe 3-o}(η-C5H5)2] (M = Ti, Zr, Hf, or Nb), their reversible one-electron reduction (M = Ti, Zr, Hf, or Nb) and oxidation (M = Nb); and the X-ray crystal structure of the zirconium complex'. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
