Abstract

This report establishes that trigonally coordinated “[PhBP^(iPr)_(3)]M” platforms (M = Fe, Co) will support both π-acidic (N_2) and π-basic (NR) ligands at a fourth binding site. The N_2 complexes of iron that are described are the first thoroughly characterized examples to exhibit a 4-coordinate geometry. Methylation of monomeric {Fe^(0)(N_(2))-} and {Co^(0)(N_(2))-} species successfully derivatizes the β-N atom of the coordinated N_(2) ligand and affords the diazenido products {Fe^(II)(N_(2)Me)} and {CoII(N2Me)}, respectively. One-electron oxidation of the mononuclear M^(0)(N_(2))- species produces dinuclear and synthetically versatile M^(I)(N_(2))M^(I) complexes. These latter species provide clean access to the chemistry of the “[PhBP^(iPr)_(3)]M^(I)” subunit. For example, addition of RN_(3) to M^(I)(N_(2))M^(I) results in oxidative nitrene transfer to generate [PhBP^(iPr)_(3)]M_(≡)NR with concomitant N_(2) release.
