Sapsford, Joshua S. and Gates, Sarah J. and Doyle, Laurence R. and Taylor, Russell A. and Díez-González, Silvia and Ashley, Andrew E. (2019) 'Cp*Fe(Me2PCH2CH2PMe2)(CHO) : hydride shuttle reactivity of a thermally stable formyl complex.', Inorganica chimica acta., 488 . pp. 201-207.
[Cp*Fe(Me2PCH2CH2PMe2)(CO)]+ [BArF24]− has been synthesised and characterised using single crystal X-ray diffraction, NMR and IR spectroscopies. Reduction of the CO ligand using Na[Et3BH] produces the corresponding neutral formyl complex Cp*Fe(Me2PCH2CH2PMe2)(CHO), that is very thermally stable, and which is attributed to the electron-releasing properties of the spectator ligands. This compound is a potent hydride donor which exists in equilibrium with [Et3BH]−, Et3B, and the structural isomer (η4-C5Me5H)Cp*Fe(Me2PCH2CH2PMe2)(CO), resulting from reversible hydride migration to the Cp* ligand.
