Abstract

A novel dithiolene-bridged diiron complex Cp*2Fe2(CO){S2C2(CO2Me)2} (1) was synthesized by the reaction of Cp*2Fe2(CO)4 with elemental sulfur and dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate in refluxing xylene. X-ray crystal structure analysis reveals that the dithiolene ligand in 1 bridges the Cp*Fe and Cp*Fe(CO) fragments unsymmetrically and that the dithiolene chelate ring is highly bent along the S—S axis.
