Reaction of chromocene with excess liquid 1,2-ethanediamine (en) or its vapours in vacuum at room temperature produces the compound [Cr(en)3](C5H5)2. Analogous reaction with 2,2'-iminobisethanamine (det) at 90 °C produces the compound [Cr(det)2](C5H5)2. The most likely bonding arrangement of the two new compounds has been suggested on the basis of results of measurements of their magnetic properties and IR spectra.
