Abstract

Reaction of trisulfido-bridged diiron complex [CpFe(CO)2]2(μ-S3) with 0.8 equiv of W(CO)5THF produced a trinuclear cluster [CpFe(CO)2]23-S3)W(CO)5 in which the W(CO)5 moiety was selectively coordinated to one of the α-sulfur atoms of the trisulfido ligand. The reaction with an excess of W(CO)5THF afforded a tetranuclear cluster [CpFe(CO)2]2μ(4-S3)[W(CO)5]2 as a major product in which the W(CO)5 moieties were coordinated to both of the α-sulfur atoms of the trisulfido ligand.
