The synthesis and structural characterization of the new olefinic complex [Rh(η5-C5H5)(coe)2] (2) (coe = cis-cyclooctene) is reported. The title compound could easily be prepared in good yield by reaction of [{Rh(μ-Cl)(coe)2}2] (1) with an appropriate amount of thallium cyclopentadienide in THF at room temperature. Single crystals of 2 were grown from n-hexane and were analyzed by X-ray crystallography. In a similar manner the compound [Rh(η5-C5H5)(cod)] (4) (cod = cis,cis-1.5-cyclooctadiene) was obtained from [{Rh(μ-Cl)(cod)}2] and thallium cyclopentadienide in THF at room temperature and was characterized by spectroscopic means as well as by X-ray diffraction.
