Abstract

Reaction of 2 equiv of 1,2-bis(dimethylsilyl)benzene with [Fe(mesityl) 2]2 in aromatic solvent under a nitrogen atmosphere afforded the dinuclear bis(silyl)iron complexes [(η6-arene) Fe(Me2SiC6H4SiMe2)] 2(μ-η11-N2) (1), which have an end-on-bound bridging dinitrogen ligand. The dinitrogen unit easily dissociated from the Fe center to generate the mononuclear (η6- arene)FeII(Si)2L or (η6-arene)Fe IV(Si)2H2 complexes by the reactions with CO, PPh3, and H2.
