Synthesis and molecular structure of the organometallic zwitterion (eta(5)-C5H3MeBCl3)Fe(CO)(3): evidence for alternative sites of nucleophilicity within the [(eta(5)-C5R5)Fe(CO)(2)](-) anion

Abstract:

The organometallic zwitterion (η5-C5H 3MeBCl3)Fe(CO)3 (2) is isolated as a minor product from the reaction between the sodium salt of the anion [(η 5-C5H4Me)Fe(CO)2]- and boron trichloride. The crystal structure of 2 [P21/n, a = 7.3927(5) Å, b = 13.8027(9) Å, c = 12.2759(9) Å, α = γ = 90°, β = 92.517(3)°] features discrete molecules in which the coordination sphere of the iron center comprises three carbonyls and a novel (η5-C5H3MeBCl3) ligand, derived from attack of BCl3 on the (η5-C5H 4Me) ...
