Abstract

Iron-alkyl complexes are found as intermediates in a variety of homogenous organometallic reactions. The chapter deals with the synthesis, stability and reactions of iron-alkyl complexes. Wilkinson and Piper in 1956 were the first to report an iron-alkyl complex, and these investigations lead to the discovery of a whole range of reactions involving these complexes. This chapter will firstly cover the preparation of iron-alkyl complexes, followed by the main categories of reactions in which these complexes take part, mainly CO insertion reactions and electrophilic cleavage reactions. A brief account of the role of FpMe (Fp = CpFe(CO)2) complexes in catalytic processes are also included in this chapter.

Keywords:

  • insertion;
  • oxidative addition;
  • reductive elimination;
  • migration;
  • electrophilic cleavage;
  • chiral;
  • stereochemistry;
