The reactions of the octahedral dihydrido complexes [MH2(PP3)] [M = Fe, Ru, Os; PP3=P(CH2CH2PPh2)3] with a variety of weak ROH acids have been studied (see scheme) by IR and NMR spectroscopic methods in either CH2Cl2 or THF. The study has allowed the determination of the spectral and thermodynamic properties associated with the formation of dihydrogen bonds (DHB) between the terminal hydrides and the OH group.
