A heptanuclear iron carbonyl cluster, [Fe3(CO) 11(μ-H)]2Fe(DMF)4 (4), is found to be a highly efficient catalyst for the reduction of various carboxamides by 1,2-bis(dimethylsilyl)benzene (BDSB), which makes possible reducing the amount of the catalyst, shortening the reaction time, and lowering the reaction temperatures.
