Another structure of the still new class of low‐valent silicon compounds bound to metals is represented by 1. The donor‐stabilized μ‐silanetriyldiiron complex cation (1) is formed upon exchange of iodide for N‐methylimidazole (L) on complex 2. The FeSi distance is shorter than in complexes of type 2 and clearly indicates a multiple‐bond character. (Figure Presented.)
