- Redetermination of (acetonitrile-κN)dicarbon-yl(η(5)-cyclo-penta-dien-yl)iron(II) tetra-fluoridoborate (2012)
- The crystal structure of the title compound, [Fe(C5H5)(CH3CN)(CO)2]BF4, of which only the coordinates of the non-H atoms of the cation have previously been reported [Fadel et al. (1979 [triangle]). Z. Anorg. Allg. Chem. 453, 98–106] has been redetermined. The FeII atom in the complex cation is coordinated by a cyclopentadienyl ring, two carbonyl ligands and an acetonitrile molecule displaying a three-legged piano stool structure. Three of the four F atoms of the BF4 − anion are disordered over two sets of sites, with a site-occupancy factor of 0.709 (10) for the major occupied site.
