The addition of reactive carbanions to tricarbonyl(η4‐1,3‐diene)iron(0) complexes proceeded at −78 °C to give putative tricarbonyl(η12‐but‐3‐en‐1‐y1)iron(0) anion complexes and at 25 °C to produce postulated tricarbonyl(η3‐allyl)iron(O) anion complexes; trapping of reactive intermediates with dioxygen produced γ,δ‐unsaturated acids and allylic alcohols, respectively.
