The iron dihydride FeH2(PP3) [PP3 = P(CH2CH2CH2PMe2)3] is fluctional, with the terminal co‐ordinated phos‐phine groups undergoing intramolecular exchange in addition to the iron‐bound hydrides. The exchange kinetics of the metal‐bound hydrides was examined using a magnetization inversion–transfer–recovery method, and the activation energy was ca. 64 kJ mol−1 at 260 K. The effect of spin–spin coupling on the magnetization transfer was examined.
