Reduction of [Rh2(μ-OAc)2(bpy)2(H2O)2](OAc)2 and [Rh2Cl2(μ-OAc)2(bpy)2] · 3H2O complexes with ethanol and [Cr2(OAc)4(H2O)2] has been investigated using e.p.r. and u.v.–vis. spectra. The results indicate that stable complexes containing the [Rh23+] entity are not formed. The X-ray structure of [Rh2Cl2(μ-OAc)2(bpy)2] · 3H2O has been determined. Coordination around the Rh atom is in the form of a distorted octahedron. The complex shows an almost ideal eclipsed conformation. The equatorial coordination sites are occupied by bridging carboxylato ligands and 2,2′-bipyridine and axial positions by the Cl ligand and the rhodium atom. The Rh–Rh distance is 2.574 Å.
