Dalton Trans. 2016 Oct 12;45(40):15840-15849.A series of tridentate, ONO- and ONN-chelating β-ketiminate ligands were synthesised via condensation reactions, and complexed with iron(ii) using [Fe(N(SiMe3)2)2THF]. The complexation reactions proceeded in high yields to generate novel, monomeric, tetracoordinate iron(ii) complexes, each bearing a bis(trimethylsilyl)amide ligand, as confirmed by X-ray crystallography. These complexes were amenable to further reaction (protonolysis) with alcohols and phenols, generating alkoxide/phenolate-containing complexes that were dimeric in the solid state. Read More
