Insertion of the P:C-functionality of (pentamethylcyclopentadienyl)(dicarbonyl)[1,3,3-tris(trimethylsilyl)-h1-1,2-diphosphaallyl]iron into a C5Me5 C-H bond: formation of a chelating (h1-P,h5-C5)-3-tetramethylcyclopentadienyl-1,2-diphosphapropanido ligand.

Heating a methylcyclohexane soln. of [(h5-C5Me5)(CO)2FeP(SiMe3)P:C(SiMe3)2] gives rise to the insertion of the P:C-moiety into the CH-bond of a ring Me group forming the chelate complex I, which is trapped by (Z-cyclooctene)Cr(CO)5 and fully characterized as its Cr(CO)5 adduct II.
