The title compound, [FePt(C9H9NO2S)(C18H15P)(C25H22P2)(CO)3], represents a rare example of an isonitrile-bridged heterobimetallic complex (here Pt and Fe) and is an interesting precursor for the preparation of heterodinuclear [mu]-aminocarbyne complexes, since the basic imine-type N atom of the [mu]2-C=N-R ligand readily undergoes addition with various electrophiles to afford iminium-like salts. In the crystal, the almost symmetrically bridging [mu]2-C=N-R ligand (neglecting the different atomic radii of Fe and Pt) is strongly bent towards the Fe(CO)3 fragment, with a C=N-R angle of only 121.1 (4)°.
