Treatment of the dihaloiron-chelating phosphine complex, Fe(DEPE)2Cl2 (1) with 2.5 equivalents of Me3SnCC6H5 (2) gives the monomeric complex, tras-Fe(DEPE)2(CCC6H5)2 (3, whereas the reaction of equimolar quantities of 1 and Me3SnCCRCCSnMe3 (R = p-C6H4 (4); p-C3)2C6H2 (5)) yields soluble and high molecular weight rigid rod polymeric species, trans-[-Fe(DEPE)2(-CCRCC-)]n (6,7).
