Retention of phosphorus configuration on forming irontetracarbonyl complexes with phosphines in the 9-phosphabicyclo[4.2.1]nonatriene and 7-phosphanorbornene systems

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Dimers of phospholes with syn or anti configuration at the bridging phosphorus react with Fe2(CO)9 to give complexes, R3PFe(CO)4, with complete retention of configuration. Contrary to a report in the literature, isomers of 9-phenylbicyclo[4.2.1]nonatriene also formed complexes with complete retention of configuration. © 1986.
