The water-soluble iron phosphine complex trans-Fe(DMeOPrPE)2Cl2 (DMeOPrPE = 1,2-bis(bis(methoxypropyl)phosphino)ethane) reacts with H2 in water to produce trans-[Fe(DMeOPrPE)2H(H2)]+ and H+. The product is a water-soluble η2-H2 metal hydride complex, formed via the heterolysis of coordinated H2 in water.
