A further analogy between inorganic and organic chemistry is found in the reaction of the rhenium complex 1 with alkali metal chalcogenides, which leads to the compounds 2 to 4. These were characterized by an X-ray structure analysis. This reaction corresponds to the alkylation of chalcogenides. Re(CO)math image (16e) and carbenium ions R3C are isolobal.
