Description

Application

Iron(0) pentacarbonyl can be used:
• As an iron source to synthesize Fe-doped thin TiO2 films.
• As a ligand to synthesize complexes of gold(I) and Fe(CO)5, silver and Fe(CO)5.

Reactant for:
• Addition reactions
• Decomposition via photolysis
• Preparation of magnetic Fe onion-like fullerene micrometer-sized particles of narrow size distribution via thermal decomposition
• Preparation of a heptanuclear iron carbonyl cluster used in catalytic hydrosilane reduction of carboxamides

• Precursor for preparation of Fe nanoparticles for photocatalytic hydrogen evolution under highly basic conditions
