Abstract: The title compound, [Fe4(C10H15)2(C8H10O4S2)2S4], contains a twisted Fe4S4 cubane-like core. A twofold rotation axis passes through the Fe4S4 core, completing the coordination of the four Fe atoms with two pentamethylcyclopentadienyl ligands and two chelating dithiolate ligands. There are three short Fe-Fe and three long FeFe contacts in the Fe4S4 core, suggesting bonding and non-bonding interactions, respectively. The Fe-S bonds in the Fe4S4 core range from 2.1523 (5) to 2.2667 (6) Å and are somewhat longer than the Fe-S bonds involving the dithiolate ligand.
