Abstract

The reaction of 2 equiv. of [Os-3(CO)(10)(MeCN)(2)] with R-C C-L-C C-R (R = H, L = (C4H2S); R = SiMe3, L=(C4H2S-C4H2S), (C4H2S-C4H2S-C4H2S), (C4H2S)-(C14H8)-(C4H2S)) affords the series of linked clusters [{Os-3(CO)(10)}( HC C(C4H2S)C CH){Os-3(CO)(10)}] (1), [{Os-3(CO)(10)}(Me3SiC C(C4H2S-C4H2S)C CSiMe3){Os-3(CO)(10)}] (2), [{Os-3(CO)(10)}(Me3SiC C(C4H2S- C4H2S-C4H2S)C CSiMe3){Os-3(CO)(10)}] (4) and [{Os-3(CO)(10)}(Me3SiC C(C4H2S)-(C14H8)-(C4H2S)C CSiMe3){Os-3(CO)(10)}] (6) as the major products. The complexes have been characterised by a range of spectroscopic methods and, in the case of 1 and 2 by single crystal X-ray crystallography. The alkyne groups cap the osmium triangles in the expected mu(3)-eta(2)-||-bonding mode and each triangle is coordinated by nine terminal and one mu(2)-carbonyl group. Solution UV-Vis spectra of the complexes were similar to those observed for the free ligands consistent with there being little delocalisation between the cluster units and the thiophene groups.
