Title: Cyanide Ligand Assembly by Carbon Atom Transfer to an Iron Nitride

The new iron(IV) nitride complex PhB( iPr 2Im) 3Fe≡N reacts with two equivalents of bis(diisopropylamino)cyclopropenylidene (BAC) to provide PhB( iPr 2Im) 3Fe(CN)(N 2)(BAC). This unusual example of a four-electron reaction involves carbon atom transfer from BAC to create a cyanide ligand along with the alkyne iPr 2N-C≡C-N iPr 2. The iron complex is in equilibrium with an N 2- free species. Further reaction with CO leads to formation of a CO analogue, which can be independently prepared using NaCN as the cyanide source, while reaction with B(C 6F 5) 3 provides the cyanoborane derivative.
