We report the structural, spectroscopic, and computational studies of two new Re(I) tricarbonyl complexes bearing 2,3,6,7-tetraphenyl-1,4,5,8-tetraazaphenanthrene (Ph4TAP) and 4,5-diazafluoren-9-one (Dafone) having a coordinated perrhenate group obtained via in situ superoxidation of Re(I) to Re(VII); intramolecular and intermolecular n→π* interactions are dominant and stabilize the molecular geometry and crystal packing.
