Chemistry and Pharmacology
The thermolysis of [CpFe(CO)2]2 (1) and P4 or As4 affords the iron clusters [Cp4Fe4(E2)2], E = As (2a), P (2b), the Fe4E4 skeleton of which consists of a triangulated dodecahedron. S8 and gray Se oxidize the P2 ligands of 2b with formation of [Cp4Fe4(P2X2)2], X = S (3a), Se (3b), complexes with the hitherto unknown P2X2 ligands, 2a, b and 3a, b have been characterized by X-ray crystallography.
