Abstract

UV irradiation of [Fe2(CO)6(mu-CO)(mu-dppm)] (1) with diphenylvinylphosphine yields [Fe2(CO)5(mu-Ph2PCH = CH2)(mu-dppm)] (2) in which the vinylphosphine acts as a bridging four electron donor ligand to the di-iron centre. Thermolysis of 2 results in carbon-phosphorus bond cleavage giving the mu-alkenyl complex [Fe2(CO)4(mu-CH = CH2)(mu-PPh2)(mu-dppm)] (3). The mu-ethenyl moiety in 3 is static at room temperature but at higher temperatures "windshield wiper" fluxionality is observed, a process conveniently monitored by P-31 NMR spectroscopy.
