The reaction between [Os3(CO)12] and 1,3-diethylindene yields [Os4H(CO)9(μ3- η2-η2-η5-C13H 15)], the structure of which is shown by X-ray crystallography to consist of a distorted tetrahedral metal framework with one triangular face coordinated by the indenyl such that the six membered ring is in the μ3-η2-η2-η2 face capping mode whilst the five membered ring is η5-bound to one of the Os atoms.
