Reaction of the tetramethylfulvene-bridged complex (η1∶η5- CH2C5Me4)Fe2(CO)6 (1) with CS2produces the triiron complex {(η5-C5Me4)CH2CS2}Fe3(CO)8 (2) and the monoiron complex {(η5-C5Me4)CH2CS2}Fe(CO)2 (3) in high yields via C–C bond formation. X-ray crystallography of 2 shows that this complex contains a dithiocarboxylato ligand, S2CCH2CsMe4, which bridges three iron fragments in a novel coordination mode. Crystal data for 2: monoclinic, space group P21/a, Z = 4, a = 18.048(3) Å, b = 11.990(1) Å, c = 12.308(1) Å, β = 94.74(1)°, V = 2654.2(5) Å3,R = 0.055, and Rw = 0.077 based on 4327 reflections with [\F0\ > 3σ(Fo)].
