Abstract

The ionic coupling of the carbonyl cluster anion [Os3Co(CO)13]- (1) with [Ru(η5-C5H5)(NCMe)3]+ affords the new pentanuclear triheterometallic cluster Os3CoRu(CO)135-C5H 5) (2) as well as the known bimetallic cluster compounds HOs3Ru(CO)115-C5H5) and Os3Ru2(CO)115-C 5H5)2. The crystal structure of cluster 2 shows that the metal framework is based on a trigonal bipyramid (approximate Cs symmetry) with the Ru, Co and an Os atom occupying the equatorial metal plane.
