Abstract

original image

The new complex (1), whose dark green crystals are stable in air, contains a five-coordinate rhodium(I) and a six-coordinate irid-ium(III) with three bridging hydride ligands. (1) can be prepared by reaction of [Rh(di-phos)(MeOH)2][BF4] with mer-[IrH3(PEt3)3] and subsequent precipitation with NaBPh4.
