Treatment of [Mn(CO)5Br] (1) with a slight excess of Me3SnCCPh affords the known species [(CO)5Mn(CCPh)] (2), whereas reaction between 1 and Me3SnCCRCCSnMe3 (R = p-C6H4C6H4) gives the bimetallic complex [(CO)5MnCCRCCSnMe3] (3). This latter species is a good precursor for other syntheses, and treatment of 3 with a further equivalent of 1 gives [(CO)5MnCCRCCMn(CO)5] (4), while 3 with trans-[Pd(PBu3)2Cl2] affords [(CO)5MnCCRCCPd(PBu3)2Cl] (5).
