[(Me3 Si)Si]3 EtGe9 Pd(PPh3 ), a Pentafunctionalized Deltahedral Zintl Cluster: Synthesis, Structure, and Solution Dynamics.


The title compound, which has a ten-atom deltahedral cluster core of Ge9 Pd, was synthesized through insertion of Pd(PPh3 ) into the tetrasubstituted nona-germanium cluster [(Me3 Si)Si]3 EtGe9 through a reaction of the latter with Pd(PPh3 )4 . This first reaction of neutral tetrasubstituted nine-atom clusters shows that they retain reactivity despite their… (More)
