A simple procedure for the preparation of new 1-, 2- and 1,3-chirally substituted indenes is described in which indenyllithium or 2-indenylmagnesium bromide is reacted with a beta-pinenyl derived chlorosilane. Synthesis of the ethylene bridged bis(indene) analogues of two of the new compounds is also described. (C) 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
