Abstract: The reactivity of alkynes bearing heteroatoms in alpha-position towards metallocenes of the early transition metals titanium and zirconium was investigated, yielding a number of new compounds. With respect to their formation, the obtained complexes can be assigned to the categories coordination, coupling and cleavage. The ability to undergo these reactions strongly depends on the heteroatom, which furthermore influences the structures and reactiveness of these complexes.
