Cyanogen Halides The title compounds react with iodine to give the iodinecarbonyl complexes (η-C5H5)Co(CO)I2 and (η-EtMe4C5)Co(CO)I2. The reactions of the same compounds with the cyanogen halides XCN (X = Br or I) give rise to the formation of mixed cyano-carbonyl complexes (η-C5H5)Co(CO)(CN)X and (η-EtMe4C5)Co(CO)(CN)X (X = Br or I) respectively. The compounds have been characterized by elemental analyses and IR and HNMR spectra.
