The iron(II) hydride dimers [L(R)Fe(μ-H)(2)FeL(R)] (L(Me) = 2,4-bis(2,6-diisopropylphenylimino) pent-3-yl; L(tBu) = 2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-3,5-bis(2,6-diisopropylphenylimino)hept-4-yl) abstract hydrocarbyl groups from BR'(3) (R' = Et, Ph) to give L(R)FeR' and L(R)Fe(μ-H)(2)BR'(2). Mechanistic studies with R = R' = Me are consistent with a process in which the… CONTINUE READING
