Abstract

A salt-elimination reaction between the neodymium monoiodide [Nd(L′)(N″)(I)]2 [L′ = ButNCH2CH2{C(NCSiMe3CHNBut)}; N″ = N(SiMe3)2] and K[FeCp(CO)2] affords the first complex with an unsupported 4f–3d metal–metal bond that is sufficiently stable to be isolated; the bond is identified as principally ionic in nature by DFT calculations.
