[Ir(cod) 2]BARF [BARF = tetrakis(3,5-trifluoromethylphenyl) borate] catalyzed the directed alkenylation and alkylation of ferrocenes to form a variety of tri- and disubstituted ferrocenes. Mechanistic investigation revealed several putative intermediates along with the importance of COD (1,5-cyclooctadiene), as a diene ligand, and a possible catalyst deactivation pathway. On the basis of the mechanistic investigation, catalytic activity was further improved.
