Expanded redox accessibility via ligand substitution in an octahedral Fe6Br6 cluster

Author affiliations

Abstract

Oxidation of the nominally all-ferrous hexanuclear cluster (HL)2Fe6 with six equivalents of ferrocenium in the presence of bromide ions results in a six-electron oxidation of the Fe6 core to afford the nominally all-ferric cluster (HL)2Fe6Br6. The hexabromide cluster is also structurally characterized in a 4+ core oxidation state. A structural comparison of these two clusters provides an insight into the Fe6 core electronic structure.
