Investigation of formally zerovalent Triphos iron complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

The reduction of Triphos [PhP(CH2CH2PPh2)2] iron halide complexes has been explored, yielding formally zerovalent (κ3-Triphos)Fe(κ2-Triphos) and (κ3-Triphos)Fe(κ2-Bpy). Electrochemical analysis, coupled with the metrical parameters of (κ3-Triphos)Fe(κ2-Bpy), reveal an electronic structure consistent with a π-radical monoanion bipyridine chelate that is antiferromagnetically coupled to a low spin, Fe(I) metal center.
