Photoinduced configurational instability at iron in the aminocarbene complexes [(η5-C5H5)Fe(CO)(L){[double bond, length half m-dash]C(NHR2)(CH2R1)}]+BF4

Abstract

Photoinduced epimerisation of chiral iron aminocarbene complexes of the type [(η5-C5H5)Fe(CO)(L){[double bond, length half m-dash]C(NHR2)(CH2R1)}]+BF4 [L = PPh3, P( p-tolyl)3; R1 = H, Me; R2 = CH2Ph, CH(Me)Ph] has been observed in 10% H2O–MeOH, MeOH, EtOH, THF and CH2Cl2 at room temperature. Exchange experiments have unambiguously established that reversible phosphine ligand (L) dissociation rather than reversible loss of the carbon monoxide ligand is the only mechanism operating.
