Mössbauer spectroscopic studies of a tricarbonyl-(nitrosobenzene)iron compound and two dicarbonyl- (nitrosobenzene)triphenyl-phosphineiron compounds have shown that these compounds possess similar structures and are dimeric in character. Solid state 13C NMR spectroscopy shows that although in such compounds the NO bond length approaches that characteristic of a single bond, the large ipso chemical shift of the NO group is only slightly diminished. Other consequences of coordination for the structure of the C-nitroso ligand are also discussed. © 1994.
