Abstract

Reaction of 3,5-Pri2Ar*Fe(η6-C6H6)(3,5-Pri2Ar* = C6H1-2,6-(C6H2-2,4,6-Pri3)2-3,5-Pri2) with N3C6H3-2,6-Mes2 (Mes = C6H2-2,4,6-Me3) afforded the dimeric iron(II) amido/aryl complex {CH2C6H2-2(C6H3-2-N(H)FeAr*-3,5-Pri2)-3,5-Me2}2 (1) which arises viamethyl hydrogen abstraction by nitrogen and dimerization of the radical via C–C bond formation; in contrast, reaction of 3,5-Pri2Ar*Fe(η6-C6H6) with N3(1-Ad) (1-Ad = 1-adamantanyl) gave the iron(V) bis(imido) complex 3,5-Pri2Ar*Fe{N(1-Ad)}2 (2).
