Title full: Reactions of the rhodium dihydride complex [RhH2(Hex-DAB)(PPh3)2][PF6] (cHex-DAB = C6H11NCHCHNC6H11) with [PPh4][Co(CO)4] and [PPh4][HFe(CO)4]. The crystal structure of [RhH2(cHex-DAB)(PPh3)2][Co(CO) 4]. The dihydride complex [RhH2(cHex-DAB)(PPh3)2][PF6] reacts with [PPh4][Co (CO)4] and [PPh4][HFe(CO)4] to give the ionic complexes [RhH2(cHex-DAB) (PPh3)2][Co(CO)4] and [Rh(cHex-DAB)(PPh3)2][HFe(CO)4] and neutral mixed Rh/Co and Rh/Fe complexes containing bridging cHex-DAB ligands and metalmetal bonds. The complex [RhH2(cHex-DAB)(PPh3)2][Co(CO 4] was studied by X-ray crystallography and shown to consist of cations [RhH2(cHex-DAB)(PPh3)2]+ and anions [Co(CO)4]- linked by coulombic forces, and possibly hydrogen bonds between the imine hydrogens and the oxygens of the carbonyl ligands. © 1989.
