Abstract

Bis(eta(6)-benzene)chromium reacts with hexafluorobenzene to yield a red charge-transfer complex [Cr(eta(6)-C6H6)(2). C6F6] which contains stacks of alternating donor and acceptor molecules with close inter- and intrastack contacts; in addition to the charge-transfer complex, formation of [Cr(eta(6)-C6H6)(2)](+) is demonstrated by EPR and IR spectroscopy.
