Abstract/Summary

Reactions of [Fe3(CO)12] with diaryltin species SnR2(R1= 2,4,6-triisopropylphenyl, R2= 2,6-diethylphenyl, R3= pentamethylphenyl) and with Sn[CH(PPh2)2]2 have been investigated. The tin reagents SnR2(R = R1 or R2) reacted under mild conditions to give in moderate yields the trinuclear species [Fe2(CO)8(µ-SnR12)]1 or [Fe2(CO)8(µ-SnR22)]2, as orange-red crystalline solids, which decompose in air on prolonged exposure. The compound [Fe2(CO)8(µ-SnR42)]3(R4= 2,4,6-triphenylphenyl) can be similarly obtained. Prolonged treatment of the carbonyl with the novel tin reagent SnR32, by contrast, afforded the known compound spiro-[(OC)8Fe2SnFe2(CO)8]4 for which data are briefly reported. Reactions with tin or lead reagents M[CH(PPh2)2]2(M = Sn or Pb) afforded [Fe2(CO)6(µ-CO)(µ-dppm)][dppm = 1,2-bis(diphenylphosphino)methane] rapidly and almost quantitatively. Full crystal and molecular structural data are reported for [Fe2(CO)8(µ-SnR12)] and [Fe2(CO)8(µ-SnR22)]. Mössbauer data are also presented for compounds 1–3, and interpreted in terms of the structural data for these and other systems.
