Routes to hydrido- and organo-iron complexes of the bidentate ligand o-phenylenebis(dimethylphosphine), o-C6H4(PMe2)2 (pdmp), have been developed, starting from trans-[FeCl2(pdmp)2]. Reduction of trans-[FeC\2(pdmp)2] with LiAlH4 gives the dihydride, cw-[FeH2(pdmp)2], there being no evidence for an intermediate monohydride [FeHCl(pdmp)2]. Treatment of /ra/w-[FeCl2(pdmp)2] with an excess of methyllithium gives [FeMe2(pdmp)2], isolated as a cis//ra;;s-mixture, the methyl groups of which are...[Show more]
