A series of mixed tetradentate ligands associating two iminophosphorane moieties with two phosphino, thiophosphino, or phosphine oxide groups (labelled 2, 3, and 4 respectively) have been prepared from the corresponding aminophosphonium derivatives. Their coordination to the iron dichloride metal fragment was achieved using the [FeCl(2)(THF)(1.5)] precursor… CONTINUE READING
