The bis-carbonyl Fe(II) complex trans-[Fe(PNP-iPr)(CO)2Cl]+ reacts with Zn as reducing agent under a dihydrogen atmosphere to give the Fe(II) hydride complex cis-[Fe(PNP-iPr)(CO)2H]+ in 97% isolated yield. A crucial step in this reaction seems to be the reduction of the acidic NH protons of the PNP-iPr ligand to afford H2 and the coordinatively unsaturated intermediate [Fe(PNPH-iPr)(CO)2]+ bearing a dearomatized pyridine moiety. This species is able to bind and heterolytically cleave H2 to give… CONTINUE READING
