Reaction of LiC13H9 with Mn(CO)5Br at −78 °C gave (η1-C13H9)Mn(CO)5, 2. Thermal rearrangement of 2 yielded (η5-C13H9)Mn(CO)3, 1, 9,9‘-bifluorene, 3, and Mn2(CO)10, 4. The product distribution was controlled by the electron donor capacity of the reaction medium. The crystal structures of 1 and 2 have been determined.
