Abstract

original image

A ring containing three As atoms (white) is linked in a novel fashion to a tetrahedron of four Co atoms (black) in the Co4As6 core of the title cluster compound. The other As atoms cap the remaining three faces of the tetrahedron. (The four PPh3 groups bonded to the Co atoms are omitted).
