Abstract

Treatment of trans-[MHCl(dmpe)(2)] (M = Fe, Ru) with hydrazine afforded the hydrido hydrazine complexes cis- and trans-[MH(N2H4)(dmpe)(2)](+) which have been characterized by NMR spectroscopy (H-1, P-31, and N-15). Both cis and trans isomers of the Fe complex and the trans isomer of the Ru complex were characterized by X-ray crystallography. Reactions with acid and base afforded a range of N2Hx complexes, including several unstable hydrido hydrazido complexes.
