Change before exchange: Cross-over experiments with chiral half-sandwich complexes [Cp′Fe(Prophos)NCR]X (Cp′=C5H5, MeC5H4; X=I, PF6), in which change of configuration at the metal atom and RCN ligand exchange compete, show that the change of the Fe configuration within the solvent cage is faster than ligand exchange (see scheme).
