The addition of triphenylcarbenium hexafluorophosphate to the title complex gives tricarbonyl(η5-cyclohexadienylium)iron hexafluorophosphate with a side chain at the C-1 position of the ring. Intramolecular cyclization of the cation using sodium- or calcium- hydride generates a heterospiro[4,5]decane derivative.
