Synthesis and Structural Characterization of a Novel Carboxy-Functionalized Diiron Dithiolate Complex

2013 Asian Journal of Chemistry  
A novel carboxy-functionalized diiron dithiolate complex, [(µ-SCH2)2NCH2CH2CO2CH2CH2Cl][Fe2(CO)6] (I) as active site model of [FeFe]-hydrogenase, has been successfully synthesized by condensation reaction of [(µ-SCH2)2NCH2CH2CO2H][Fe2(CO)6] (A) with HOCH2CH2Cl in the presence of 4-dimethylaminopyridine and dicyclohexylcarbodiimide. Its structure was characterized by combustion analysis, ESI-MS, IR and 1 H ( 13 C) NMR spectroscopic techniques.
