Cover illustration: The molecular title complex, [Fe(C5H5){Sn(C2H5)3}(C5H5N)(CO)], was synthesised under photolytic conditions and is a rare example of a transition metal-stannyl complex with an additional pyridine ligand. The central FeII atom is coordinated by carbonyl, pyridine, triethylstannyl and cyclopentadienyl ligands in a typical three-legged piano-stool configuration.
