Naturforsch. 55 b, 235-237 (2000); received December 17, 1999 Osmium Compounds, Vibrational Spectra Reaction of OsCf, with pentamethylcyclopentadiene in ethanol in air yields the ionic osmium(IV) compound [Cp*20sCl]2[0 sCl6] which has been identified structurally and by vi­ brational spectroscopy. Under comparable conditions the RuCb homologue yields the ruthenium(III) compound [Cp’RuCbh, illustrating the more facile oxidation of the 5d element to the tetravalent state.
