Abstract

Electrospray mass spectrometry and thermogravimetric analysis reveals that bis(1-phenyl-1-phospha-4,7-dithiacyclononane)iron(II) is more susceptible to ethene loss than bis(1,4,7-trithiacyclononane)iron(II). This is in accord with X-ray crystallographic studies, which show that the C-S bonds are longer in the former complex suggesting an increased population of the C-S sigma* pi-acceptor orbitals.
