Reactions of metal carbonyl cluster complexes with multidentate phosphine ligands; preparation of 1,1-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethene derivatives, and the x-ray crystal structures of Fe(CO)3(dppee) and
Abstract A number of metal cluster carbonyl complexes containing the 1,1-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethene (dppee) ligand have been prepared and characterised, as have the mononuclear iron complexesExpand
Binuclear rhodium carbonyl halide complexes containing the 1,1-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethene ligand, and the crystal structure of [Rh2Cl2(μ-CO){Ph2PC(CH2)PPh2}2]
Treatment of [RhCl(CO)2]2 with 1,1-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethene (dppee) yields the cationic binuclear rhodium complex [Rh2(μ-Cl)(CO)2(μ-CO)(dppee)2]+ which may be isolated as the [RhCl2(CO)2]− saltExpand
Reactions of metal carbonyl cluster complexes with multidentate phosphine ligands; preparation of bis(diphenylphosphino)methane derivatives of the trinuclear complexes M3(CO)12 (M = Fe, Ru and Os)
Abstract The reaction of bis(diphenylphosphino)methane (dppm) with Fe3(CO)12 gave the known complexes Fe(CO)4 (dppm), Fe2(CO)7 (dppm), in addition to Fe2CO)5(dppm)2. Two new dppm derivatives ofExpand
A natural source for Neohesperidin
The questionable status of saccharin and the ban of cyclamates from U. S. markets has resulted in the search for substitute sweeteners. Among the important, potential substitute sweeteners are theExpand
The synthesis and X-ray structure of the heterometallic tetranuclear butterfly cluster complex, [Fe2Rh2(CO)8{µ-Ph2PC(CH2)PPh2}2]
Treatment of the heterometallic complex [(OC)4Fe{µ-Ph2PC(CH2)PPh2}RhCl(CO)] with Me3NO affords the tetranuclear cluster [Fe2Rh2(CO)8{µ-Ph2PC(CH2) PPh2}2] which has been characterised by X-rayExpand
The use of bidentate phosphine ligands in the synthesis of iron-rhodium heterobimetallic complexes.
Abstract Treatment of Fe(CO)3(dppee) (1) (dppee = 1,1-bis(diphenylphosphino)ethene) with [RhCl(CO)2]2 leads to the immediate formation of the known heterobimetallic complex (CO)4F e(μ-dppee)R h(CO)ClExpand
