Sterically induced reductive linkage of iron polypnictides with bulky lanthanide complexes by ring-opening of THF

Abstract

Reduction of [Cp*Fe(η5-E5)] (E = P, As) with divalent lanthanide reagents usually leads to reduction of [Cp*Fe(η5-E5)] followed by a Ln–E bond formation. In contrast, by using the sterically encumbered reagent [(DippForm)2Sm(thf)2] (DippForm = {(2,6-iPr2C6H3)NC(H)[double bond, length as m-dash]N(2,6-iPr2C6H3)}), ring-opening of thf and reduction of the polypnictide is observed. This leads to two new 3d/4f polyphosphide or polyarsenide complexes [(DippForm)2Sm(Cp*Fe)E5{(CH2)4O}{(DippForm)2Sm(thf)}], in which [(DippForm)2Sm(thf)2] and [Cp*Fe(η5-E5)] are linked by a ring-opened thf molecule and no Ln–E bond formation is observed.
