1. Question
Start with a organometallic (Benzene)M(Co)3see picture below) and React it with R- to get A, Then react A with I2 to get B and react A with H+ to get C. What is A,B and C?

3. Attempt at answering the question.
I am not sure about the hapticity of Benzene. ? But i am prety sure that the first step is a Nucleophilic addition. Where R adds to the Metal, but i am not sure if one CO ligand will leave first or not.

I am more unsure about where the protonation will occur in C and I can not for my life figure out what B will be when A are reacted with I2. Sorry for the little information but i am desperate and do not know what else to write.

Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?
