Abstract

The reactions of vinyliminium complexes [Fe2{μ-η1:η3- C(R)=C(H)C=N(Me)(R)}(μ-CO)(CO)(Cp)2][SO3CF3] (R = Xyl, R = Me, 1a; R = Xyl, R = Tol, 1b; R = Xyl, R = COOMe, 1c; R = Me, R = Me, 1d; R = Me, R = nBu, 1e; R = p-MeOC6H4, R = Me, 1f; Tol = 4-C6H4Me, Xyl = 2,6-Me2C6H3) with CS2 and NaH resulted in the replacement of CH hydrogen (in the bridging frame) with CS2 to give the corresponding dithiocarboxylate- vinyliminium complexes [Fe2{μ-η1:η3-C(R)=C- (CS2)C=N(Me)(R)}(μ-CO)(CO)(Cp)2] (2a–2f). Analogously, 1a and 1d reacted with NaH and SCNPh to afford the complexes [Fe2{μ-η1:η3-C(R)=C{C(NPh)S}C=N(Me)(R)}(μ-CO)(CO)(Cp)2] (R = Xyl, R = Me, 3a; R = Me, R = Me, 3b), respectively.
