[{Micro-(phthalazine-N2:N3)}Fe2(micro-CO)(CO)6](1) reacts with organolithium reagents, RLi (R = CH3, C6H5, p-CH3C6H4, p-CH3OC6H4, p-CF3C6H4, p-C6H5C6H4), followed by treatment with Me3SiCl to give the novel diiron carbonyl complexes with a saturated N-N six-membered diazane ring ligand, [{C6H4CH(R)NNCH2}Fe2(C=O)(CO)6](2, R = CH3; 3, R = C6H5; 4, R =p-CH3C6H4; 5, R =p-CH3OC6H4; 6, R =p-CF3C6H4; 7, R =p-C6H5C6H4). Compounds 4 and 5 were treated with [(NH4)2Ce(NO3)6] to afford the aryl-substituted phthalazine-coordinated diiron carbonyl compounds [(micro-{1-(p-CH3C6H4)-phthalazine-N2:N3})Fe2(micro-CO)(CO)6](8) and [(micro-{1-(p-CH3OC6H4)-phthalazine-N2:N3})Fe2(micro-CO)(CO)6](9), respectively. The structures of complexes 4 and 9 have been established by X-ray diffraction studies.
