A facile enediynefulveneindene transformation pro-
vides a route to all possible isotopomers of substituted
fulvenes and indenes.
Interest in substituted fulvenes and benzofulvenes stems from
their potential as building blocks for the preparation of met-
allocene catalysts,1
and from the application of fulvenes as
electron acceptors in material science and molecular electronics.2
