The first examples of
magnesium benzenehexolate complexes are prepared by reductive hexamerizations
of CO, in reactions that are initiated (or catalyzed) by [Mo(CO)6].
These reactions are closely related to Justus von Liebig’s classical 1834 study
on the reduction of CO gas with molten potassium, which yields K6C6O6
(amongst other products), by an as yet unknown mechanism.
