Abstract

μ3-Bi[Fe(C5H5)(CO)]3 crystallizes in the orthorhombic space group Pnma with a 18.289(1), b 13.687(1), c 7.055(1) Å, and four molecules in the unit cell. On the basis of 1532 unique observed reflections the structure was refined to Rw = 0.030 for 136 refined parameters. μ3-Bi[Fe(C5H5)(CO)]3 forms a closo tetrahedral cluster in which an almost isosceles triangle of Fe centers is capped by the bismuth atom. Each iron atom is complexed by a Cp-ring, and the iron-iron bonds are bridged by the carbonyl groups (Bi-Fe 2.573(1) and 2.574(1), Fe-Fe 2.606(1) and 2.578(1) Å).
