      Abstract. The reaction of the tetranuclear iron complex [μ4-Sulfido-bis{(μ-2-furylmethanethiolato) bis[tricarbonyliron](Fe—Fe)}] 1 with PPh3 was explored. The reaction leads to the formation of the monosubstituted complex [Fe2.μ-2-furylmethanethiolate)2.(CO)5.(PPh3)] 2. X-ray crystal structure has been reported for complex 2. Complexes 1 and 2 were found to be active catalysts for proton reduction. Complexes 1 and 2 showed comparable catalytic activity for proton reduction to dihydrogen.
