The thioester Ph 2PC 6H 4-2-C (O ) SPh reacts with Fe 2(CO) 9 to give [Ph 2PC 6H 4C(O)]Fe(SPh) (CO) 3, a model for the CO-inhibited active site of the enzyme Hmd. This species, which reversibly decarbonylates to give a diiron derivative, reacts with cyanide to give [[Ph 2PCgH 4C(O)]Fe(SPh)(CN)(CO) 2] -.
