Addition of the [NH] transfer reagent Hdbabh (dbabh = 2,3:5,6-dibenzo-7- azabicyelo[2.2.1]hepta-2,5-diene) to the bis(imino)pyr-idine iron bis(dinitrogen) complex, ( lPrPDI)Fe(N 2) 2 ( PrPDI = 2,6-(2,6 -1Pr 2C 6H 3N=CMe) 2C 5H 3N), furnished the corresponding iron amide and ammonia compounds, resulting from cleavage of the strained amine. Isotopic labeling studies support N-H bond activation by a transient, parent imide, [( iprPDI)FeNH].
