The oxidation of sterically hindered, CpCo-protected cyclobutadienes with ceric ammonium nitrate (CAN) yielded the paramagnetic Co(NO3)2-protected cyclobutadiene products. These half-sandwich complexes represent possible intermediates within the mechanism of the CAN decomplexation of CpCo−cyclobutadiene complexes.
