    The preparation of two new indenyl esters 2-(2,4,6-trimethylbenzoyloxy)indene (1) and 2-(adamantanoyloxy)indene (2) is reported. Both compounds can be deprotonated with alkyllithiums such as n-BuLi and the resulting anions trapped by addition of TMSCl or iodomethane, rendering them as potential electronically modified cyclopentadienyl ligand analogues for complexation with transition metals.
