A Bis(silylenyl)pyridine Zero-Valent Germanium Complex and Its Remarkable Reactivity.


The synthesis, reactivity, and electronic structure of the unique germylone iron carbonyl complex [SiNSi]Ge0 →Fe(CO)4 is reported. The compound was obtained in 49 % yield from the reaction of the bis(N-heterocyclic silylenyl)pyridine pincer ligand SiNSi (1,6-C5 NH3 -[EtNSi(Nt Bu)2 CPh]2 ) with GeCl2 ⋅(dioxane) to give the corresponding… (More)
