    • Abstract


      The reaction of [Fe2(CO)6(𝜇-toluene-3, 4-benzenedithiolate)] 1 and bidentate diphosphine, 1, 1′-bis(diphenylphosphino)ferrocene (dppf) has been studied. New complexes obtained have been characterized by various spectroscopic techniques as bioinspired models of the iron hydrogenase active site. The crystal structure of [Fe2(CO)5(𝜅1-dppfO)(𝜇-toluene-3, 4-benzenedithiolate)] 4 is reported.
