Of central importance to elucidating iron's role in biol. nitrogen fixation are the accessible geometries and oxidn. states of proposed iron intermediates. Our group has an ongoing interest in exploring the chem. of Fe- N_xH_y species and have successfully described terminal imide and nitride species supported by anionic tris(phosphino)borate ligands as well as terminal N_2 complexes stabilized by anionic tris(phosphino)silyl ligands in pseudo-tetrahedral and trigonal-bipyramidal geometries…
