Reaction of a Sterically Encumbered Iron(I) Aryl/arene with Organoazides: Formation of an Iron(v) Bis(imide)
Reaction of 3,5-Pri2Ar*Fe(η6- C6H6)(3,5-Pri2Ar* = C 6H1-2,6-(C6H2-2,4,6-Pr i3)2-3,5-Pri2) with N3C6H3-2,6-Mes2 (Mes = C 6H2-2,4,6-Me3) afforded the dimeric iron(ii) amido/aryl complex CH2C6H2-2(C 6H3-2-N(H)FeAr*-3,5-Pri2)-3,5-Me22 (1) which arises via methyl hydrogen abstraction by nitrogen and dimerization of the radical via C-C bond formation; in contrast, reaction of 3,5-Pri2Ar *Fe(η6-C6H6) with N3(1-Ad) (1-Ad = 1-adamantanyl) gave the iron(v) bis(imido) complex 3,5-Pr i2Ar*FeN(1-Ad)2 (2). © The Royal Society of Chemistry.
