Description/Abstract

The reactions of [MeAl(2-py)3Li·thf]( 1) with FeCl2 or Cp2Mn in toluene–thf give simple access to the Group 13–transition metal heterometallic complexes [{MeAl(2-py)3}2M][M = Fe ( 2), Mn ( 3)]; complex 2 has been shown to be a highly selective styrene epoxidation catalyst in air.
