Abstract

original image

Cleavage of a P[BOND]P bond is achieved when the cyclo-P5 part of the ferrocene analogue [Cp*FeP5] reacts with tantalum and iridium complex fragments. The bi-, tri-, and pentanuclear complexes formed in this way have novel structures. The central framework of [Cp*Fe(P5)TaCp ″] shown on the right is one example. Cp ″ + C5Me5, Cp ″ = C5H3rBu2.
