Reaction of (η5-C5H5)(CO)2FeNa with ClSiMe2-SiPh3 yields (η5-C5H5)-Fe(CO)2SiMe2-SiPh3. The crystal structure of the compound has been determined by X-ray diffraction. The SiSi bond distance is 2.374(1) Å, which is longer by 0.018 Å than that in Me3Si-SiPh3. This difference is in agreement with spectroscopic data, and is presumably due to the σ-donor property of the silyl group. The SiFe bond length is 2.346(1) Å.
