    Tris(2,6-di-t-butylphenoxo)cerium reacts with (C5Me5)Li in pentane to form (η5-C5Me5)bis(2,6-di-t-butylphenoxo)cerium, whose structure was established by X-ray crystallography and which, on subsequent reaction with LiCH(SiMe3)2, gives a novel mono(C5Me5)cerium-bisalkyl complex, (C5Me5)Ce[CH(SiMe3)2]2.
