What is it about?
Schiff base nucleophiles have been employed with cationic cyclohexadienyliron pi-complexes to gain access to intermediates that are suitable for elaboration into new amino acid structures. Addition to a vinyl substituted cation formed a quaternary centre in the first example of this mode of addition. The results demonstrate that Schiff base nucleophiles have appropriate basicity/reactivity properties for use with tricarbonyliron complexes.
