Iron centers in highly siliceous environments have been isolated by the reaction of incompletely condensed polyhedral silasesquioxanes with iron phosphane complexes in benzene. Among the new compounds is the oxo-bridged dianionic dimer 1. Single-crystal X-ray structures and preliminary reactivity studies are described.
