Abstract

Treatment of anhydrous FeX2 (X = Cl, Br, I) with one equivalent of bis(diphenylphosphino)ethane (dppe) in refluxing THF afforded analytically pure white (X = Cl), light green (X = Br), and yellow (X = I) [FeX2(dppe)]n (X = Cl, ; Br, ; I, ). Complexes are excellent synthons from which to prepare a range of cyclopentadienyl derivatives. Specifically, treatment of with alkali metal salts of C5H5 (Cp, series ), C5Me5 (Cp*, series ), C5H4SiMe3 (Cp', series ), C5H3(SiMe3)2 (Cp'', series ), and C5H3(Bu(t))2 (Cp(tt), series ) afforded [Fe(Cp(†))(Cl)(dppe)] , [Fe(Cp(†))(Br)(dppe)] , and [Fe(Cp(†))(I)(dppe)] (Cp(†) = Cp, Cp*, Cp', Cp'', or Cp(tt)). Dissolution of in acetonitrile, or treatment of with Me3SiI in acetonitrile (no halide exchange reactions were observed in other solvents) afforded the separated ion pair complexes [Fe(Cp(†))(NCMe)(dppe)][I] . Attempts to reduce , , and with a variety of reductants (Li-Cs, KC8, Na/Hg) were unsuccessful. Treatment of with LiAlH4 gave the hydride derivatives [Fe(Cp(†))(H)(dppe)] . This report provides a systematic account of reliable methods of preparing these complexes which may find utility in molecular wire and metal-metal bond chemistries. The complexes reported herein have been characterised by X-ray diffraction, NMR, IR, UV/Vis, and Mössbauer spectroscopies, cyclic voltammetry, density functional theory calculations, and elemental analyses, which have enabled us to elucidate the electronic structure of the complexes and probe the variation of iron redox properties as a function of varying the cyclopentadienyl or halide ligand.
