Isomerization between cis-Cp′2Fe2(CO)3(μ- SiHTol) (cis-1; Cp′= η-C5Me5, Tol = p-CH3C6H4) and trans-1 was found to occur both thermally and photochemically. The composition in the thermal equilibrium state (cis-1:trans-1 = 2:98 in cyclohexane-d12) is considerably different from that in the photostationary state (cis-1: trans-1 = 70:30).
