Tricarbonylchromium complexes of diacetylbenzenes and 2,2'-diacetylbiphenyl were prepared in reasonable yields by direct complexation of the starting materials. Tricarbonylchromium complexes of diformylbenzenes and 2,2'-diformylbiphenyl were prepared in good yields by the complexation of the corresponding dioxolanes followed by acidic hydrolysis of the protective groups.
