Cluster chemistry. 85. Addition of a gold acetylide to an Ru5 cluster. X-ray structure of AuRu55-C2PPh2)(μ-C2Ph)(μ-PPh2)(CO)13(PPh3)

Abstract

The reaction between Ru55-C2PPh2)(μ-PPh2)(CO)13 and Au(C2Ph)(PPh3) afforded AuRu55-C2PPh2)(μ-C2Ph)(μ-PPh2)(CO)13 (PPh3), in which the Ru5 cluster has a scorpion geometry; the Au(PPh3) group bridges one of the Ru-Ru bonds of the Ru3 triangle, while the C2Ph group bridges one of the tail Ru-Ru vectors.
