Two dragons playing ball: Direct metal–metal bond formation using a π-conjugated dinuclear metalladithiolene complex with two electron-deficient metal centers as building blocks led to a cyclic double trinuclear heterometalladithiolene cluster with two parallel plane bridges (see structure; Rh pink, Mo green, S yellow, C gray, O red).
