MeLi reacts with Me5C5M(acac) to give the trinuclear clusters (Me5C5)3M33-CH)(μ-H) (M = Co, Ni). The 49-electron nickel cluster is paramagnetic with one unpaired electron, and the 46-electron cobalt cluster is also paramagnetic; the latter reacts with dihydrogen to give diamagnetic (Me5C5)3Co33-CH)(μ-H)3.
