Reaction of the high-spin iron(II) alkyl complex [{PhB(CH_2PiPr_2)_3}FeMe] with phenylsilane or mesitylsilane affords unusual diamagnetic silane adducts of the iron(II) hydride [{PhB(CH_2PiPr_2)_3}FeH]. An η^3 bonding mode in these silane adducts has been established by NMR spectroscopy, X-ray crystallography, and DFT methods. Rapid interconversion of the hydride positions in solution via a silylene intermediate is proposed.
