Routes to metallodendrimers of the [Re(6)(mu(3)-Se)(8)](2+) core-containing clusters.

The reaction of [Re6(mu3-Se)8(PEt3)5(MeCN)](SbF6)2 with an excess of 1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethane (L1) and (E)-1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethene (L2) produced [Re6(mu3-Se)8(PEt3)5(L1)](SbF6)2 and [Re6(mu3-Se)8(PEt3)5(L2)](SbF6)2, respectively, each bearing an accessible pyridyl N atom capable of further metal coordination. Reacting these cluster complex-based ligands… (More)
