(Matrix presented) Dicobalt-β-pinene hybrids of types I and II have been prepared using a Nicholas reaction between propargyl derivatives, obtained from commercial (1R)-(-)-myrtenal, and different aromatic nucleophiles. The method is suitable for the preparation of densely functionalized bio-organometallic natural product-based hybrids, as demonstrated by the preparation of a β-pinene-neoclerodane hybrid.
