The crystal structure of the title compound, [Fe(CS2N(CH2)4)3] (a new phase prepared from chloroform/toluene solutions), has been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction at 295 K and refined to a residual of 0•059 for 5651 ‘observed’ reflections. Crystals are monoclinic, P21/a, a 18•033(6), b 9•398(2), c 13•176(6) Å, β 100•80(3)°, Z 4. The compound is a purely high-spin derivative, the iron atom being in the usual pseudo-D3 environment with <Fe-S> very long (2-456Å).
