Methylene insertion into an Fe2S2 cluster: formation of a thiolate-bridged diiron complex containing an Fe–CH2–S moiety

Author affiliations

Abstract

Reduction of a thiolate-bridged FeIIFeIII complex leads to the cleavage of an Fe–S bond by the insertion of the methylene unit from CH2Cl2 to give a neutral FeIIFeIII complex with a novel Fe–CH2–S fragment. The structural and electrochemical differences of the alkylated and the non-alkylated Fe2S2 complexes are also examined.
