Oxidative addition of 1-bromo-1H-indene to [Mo(CO)(3)(NCMe)(3)] and [W(CO)(3)(NCEt)(3)] is a suitable method for preparation of the indenyl compounds [IndMo(CO)(3)Br] and [IndW(CO)(3)Br], respectively. These products were fully characterised using spectroscopic methods. Structure of [ IndW( CO) 3Br] was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis.
