1,1'-Bis[bis(4-tert-butylphenyl)methyl]ferrocene

H. Bauer, Y. Sun and H. Sitzmann

Abstract top

The molecule of the title compound, [Fe(C26H31)2], is located on an inversion center. The two cyclopentadienyl rings exhibit a staggered conformation, which results from the bulky bis(4-tert-butylphenyl)methyl substituents situated on opposite sides of the molecule.

Comment top

Our interest in paramagnetic cyclopentadienyliron complexes (Sitzmann et al., 1996; Sitzmann, 2001; Weismann et al., 2011) and cyclopentadienyl radicals (Sitzmann et al., 1998; Sitzmann et al., 2000) stimulated experiments aimed at the generation of ferrocenyl derivatives of the Gomberg radical (Gomberg, 1900; Gomberg, 1901; Gomberg, 1902). The triphenylmethyl radical exists in solution in an equilibrium with its unsymmetrical dimer, where one para phenyl carbon atom forms a bond to the central methyl carbon of the second molecule (Lankamp et al., 1968; McBride, 1974). In order to prepare starting compounds for the synthesis of ferrocenyl diaryl radicals, diphenylfulvene was equipped with tert-butyl substituents in the para position to prevent such side reactions. Treatment with lithium aluminium hydride and metalation with n-butyllithium, followed by complexation with iron(II) chloride, gave the corresponding ferrocene with two bis(4-tert-butylphenyl)methyl substituents.

The iron center is bound to the cyclopentadienyl ring in the typical η5 manner. The distance between the two cyclopentadienyl ring planes is 3.315 Å, implying a Cpcent—Fe distance of 1.658 Å. The two Cp rings are arranged in a staggered conformation which results from the large di(4-tert-butylphenyl)methyl substituents arranging on opposite sides of the molecule.

Experimental top

Synthesis of 5-(di(4-tert-butylphenyl)methyl)-1,3-cyclopentadien: To a stirred solution of 1,1'-bis-(4-tert-butylphenyl)-(2,4-cyclopentadien-ylidenemethylene) (2.04 g, 6.0 mmol) in THF (60 mL) was added lithium aluminium hydride (300 mg, 8.0 mmol). The reaction mixture was heated at 65 °C for 15 h until the orange suspension became colourless. The colourless suspension was slowly poured onto a mixture of diluted sulfuric acid (10%) and ice. After separation, the aqueous layer was extracted with toluene (3 x 100 mL) and the combined organic layers were washed with water (100 mL), dried over MgSO4 and taken to dryness in vacuo. This yielded a light yellow solid (1.88 g, 5.46 mmol, 91%).

Synthesis of (di(4-tert-butylphenyl))methyl-cyclopentadienyl lithium: To a stirred solution of 5-(di(4-tert-butylphenyl)methyl)-1,3-cyclopentadien (2.07 g, 6.0 mmol) in diethyl ether (100 mL) at 0 °C a solution (1.9 mol/l) of n-butyl lithium (4.0 mL, 6.4 mmol) in hexane was added dropwise. After stirring for ten minutes at 0 °C, the mixture was allowed to stir for 30 minutes at room temperature until the yellow solution turned to an orange suspension. The solvent was removed in vacuo and the residue was suspended in pentane (50 mL), filtered and washed with pentane (3 x 50 mL), yielding a colourless powder (1.77 g, 5.05 mmol, 84%).

Synthesis of 1,1'-bis[(di(4-tert-butylphenyl)methyl)cyclopentadienyl]iron: A mixture of (di(4-tert-butylphenyl))methyl-cyclopentadienyl lithium (1.77 g, 5.05 mmol) and anhydrous iron(II) chloride (659.1 mg, 5.20 mmol) in THF (250 mL) was stirred for 18 h at room temperature. The darkened solution was evaporated and the resulting residue extracted with pentane (5 x 100 mL). The yellow solution was taken to dryness and the yellow powder recrystallized from pentane. The product could be crystallized at low temperature yielding plate-like yellow crystals (1.16 g, 1.56 mmol, 62%).

Special details top

Geometry. All s.u.'s (except the s.u. in the dihedral angle between two l.s. planes) are estimated using the full covariance matrix. The cell s.u.'s are taken into account individually in the estimation of s.u.'s in distances, angles and torsion angles; correlations between s.u.'s in cell parameters are only used when they are defined by crystal symmetry. An approximate (isotropic) treatment of cell s.u.'s is used for estimating s.u.'s involving l.s. planes.

Refinement. Refinement of F2 against ALL reflections. The weighted R-factor wR and goodness of fit S are based on F2, conventional R-factors R are based on F, with F set to zero for negative F2. The threshold expression of F2 > 2σ(F2) is used only for calculating R-factors(gt) etc. and is not relevant to the choice of reflections for refinement. R-factors based on F2 are statistically about twice as large as those based on F, and R- factors based on ALL data will be even larger. All hydrogen atoms were placed in calculated positions (C–H 0.96, 0.98 or 1.00 Å) and refined by using a riding model.
