Studies on the reactivity of [Ge9]4- towards [Fe(cot)(CO)3]: synthesis and characterization of [Ge8Fe(CO)3]3- and of the anionic organometallic species [Fe(cot)(CO)3]-.
Reaction of cyclooctatetraene (COT) iron(II) tricarbonyl, [Fe(cot)(CO)(3)], with one equivalent of K(4)Ge(9) in ethylenediamine (en) yielded the cluster anion [Ge(8)Fe(CO)(3)](3-) which was crystallographically-characterized as a [K(2,2,2-crypt)](+) salt in [K(2,2,2-crypt)](3)[Ge(8)Fe(CO)(3)]. The chemically-reduced organometallic species [Fe(η(3)-C(8)H(8))(CO)(3)](-) was also isolated as a side-product from this reaction as [K(2,2,2-crypt)][Fe(η(3)-C(8)H(8))(CO)(3)]. Both species were furthe...Expand abstract
