Synthesis of Iron Hydride Complexes Relevant to Hydrogen Isotope Exchange in Pharmaceuticals

Addition of H2 gas to the bis(arylimidazolin-2-ylidene)pyridine iron bis(dinitrogen) complex (H4-iPrCNC)Fe(N2)2 resulted in facile oxidative addition of the H–H bond to yield a mixture of (H4-iPrCNC)FeH4 and trans-(H4-iPrCNC)FeH2(N2), depending on the partial pressures of H2 and N2. Both iron hydride complexes were characterized by X-ray diffraction and proved relevant to the catalytic hydrogen isotope exchange of arene C(sp2)–H bonds. Activation of the benzene-d6 solvent at ambient temperature produced deuterated isotologues of both compounds that exhibit large isotopic perturbation of resonances in the hydride signals.
