The interaction of (Ph2PN)C(Ph)[N(SiMe3)2] with one equivalent of C7H8Cr(CO)4 in diethyl ether gave cis-(CO)4Cr[(Me3SiN)C(Ph)(NHPPh2)] in good yield. The compound has been fully characterized by analytical, spectroscopic and X-ray diffraction methods. The NH proton of the bidentate iminophosphine ligand undergoes facile deuterium exchange with D2O at ambient temperature. A 1,3-silyl shift mechanism has been proposed for the formation of the product.
