Synthesis and reactivity of the ferrocene-derived phosphine [Fe(η-C5H5){η-C5H4CH2P(CH2OH)2}]

Abstract

The air-stable compound [Fe(η-C5H5){η-C5H4CH2P(CH2OH)2}] 1 has been prepared by the reaction of [Fe(η-C5H5)(η-C5H4CH2NMe3)]I with an excess of P(CH2OH)3. Compound 1 has been used to produce a range of other new compounds, thus demonstrating its versatility as a starting material; the phosphine oxide [Fe(η-C5H5){η-C5H4CH2P(O)(CH2OH)2}] 2, phosphine sulfide [Fe(η-C5H5){η-C5H4CH2P(S)(CH2OH)2}] 3, and other derivatives [Fe(η-C5H5){η-C5H4CH2P(CH2CH2CN)2}] 4, [Fe(η-C5H5){η-C5H4CH2P(CH2NEt2)2}] 5, [Fe(η-C5H5){η-C5H4CH2P(O)(CH2NEt2)2}] 6, [Fe(η-C5H5){η-C5H4CH2P(Me)(CH2OH)2}]I 7 and [Fe(η-C5H5){η-C5H4CH2P(Me)CH2OH}] 8. Crystal structure determinations for 1, 3 and 7 are reported and the hydrogen bonding of each structure described.
