Photoreversible multiple additions of hydrogen to a highly unsaturated platinum-rhenium cluster complex.


The compound Pt3Re2(CO)6(PBut3)3, 1, was obtained from the reaction of Re2(CO)10 with Pt(PBut3)2 in octane solvent at reflux. Compound 1 consists of a trigonal bipyramidal cluster of five metal atoms with three platinum atoms in the trigonal plane and the two rhenium atoms in the apical positions. The metal cluster is formally unsaturated by 10 electrons… (More)
