Organometallic Chemistry


A number of earlier unknown tri- and tetranuclear organometallic clusters of group VIII transition metals was synthesized by the addition of coordinatively unsaturated species to a single metal-metal bond. A number of novel heteronuclear clusters, CpCp 2 Rhm2(μ−CO)33−CO), (Cp′=Cp, Cp*; M2=Ru2, Fe2; RuFe); Cp2Cp 2 * Rh2M23−CO)3 (M = Ru, Fe); , Cp3Cp*Rh3M(μ3−CO)23−d) (M = Ru, Fe); Cp2Cp 2 *> Rh2Co23−CO)2,etc., was obtained.
