Stereochemistry of electrophilic attack at 34e- dimetallic complexes: The case of diiron dithiolato carbonyls + MeS+

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Experimental and computational experiments show that the electrophile MeS+ attacks a single Fe center in Fe2(propanedithiolate) (CO)4(PMe3)2 followed by isomerization of this terminal thiolato complex to the corresponding μ-SMe derivative.
