Abstract

Treatment of a three-membered metallacycle Cp*(CO)Fe{k 2(Si,P)-SiMe2PPh2} (1) with substrates of the type RnEH (ERn = OH, OMe, OiBu, OPh, S pTol, NEt2, NPhH, PPh2, and PPhH) results in the instantaneous formation of the ring-opening products Cp*(CO)Fe- (PPh2H)(SiMe2ERn). In these reactions, 1,2-additdon of the substrates occurs exclusively across the silicon-phosphorus bond in 1. The structures of the products have been unequivocally determined by spectroscopic data and X-ray diffraction analysis.
