The new bridging methylene complex (CO)4FePt (PPh3)2(μ-CH2), has been prepared by the reaction of Fe2(μ-CH2)(CO)8 with Pt(PPh3)2(CH2CH2) and has been crystallographically characterized: P21/c, a = 10.338(2), b = 19.604(5), c = 18.422(4) Å, β = 105.30(2), Dc = 1.65, Z = 4, R = 3.54, Rw = 3.64 for 4052 reflections with Fo ≥ 5 σ(Fo). The iron atom has a distorted octahedral geometry defined by the four carbonyl ligands, the platinum atom, and the methylene ligand, whereas the platinum center has a distorted square planar geometry.
