Abstract [en]

Three diiron dithiolate complexes containing rigid and conjugated bridges, [mu-SC6H4-2-(CO)S-mu]Fe-2(CO)(6) (1), [2-mu-SC5H3N-3-(CO)S-mu]Fe-2(CO)(6) (2). and the PPh3-monosubstituted complex [mu-SC6H4-2-(CO)S-mu]Fe-2(CO)(5)(PPh3) (1-P), were prepared as biomimetic models for the [FeFe]-hydrogenase active site. The structures of complexes 1 and 2 were determined by single crystal X-ray analysis, which shows that each complex features a rigid coplanar dithiolate bridge with a 2-3 degrees deviation from the bisect plane of the molecule. The influence of the rigid bridge on the reduction potentials of complexes 1, 2 and 1-P was investigated by electrochemistry. The cyclic voltammograms of complexes 1 and 2 display large positive shifts for the primary reduction potentials, that is, 380-480 mV in comparison to that of the pdt-bridged (pdt = propane-1,3-dithiolato) complex (mu-pdt)Fe-2(CO)(6) and 160-260 mV to that of the bdt-bridged (bdt = benzene- 1,2-dithiolato) analogue ([mu-bdt)Fe-2(CO)(6).
