New rings on the block: The first supramolecular aggregates incorporating the cyclo-P3 ligand complexes [CpRMo(CO)2(η3-P3)] (CpR=Cp (C5H5), Cp* (C5(CH3)5)) have been isolated and comprehensively characterized. The products consist of one-dimensional polycationic chains and amongst them is also the first example of a homoleptic complex in which silver is octahedrally coordinated to six phosphorus atoms (see Figure; blue: molybdenum, pink: phosphorus, orange: silver; Cp and CO ligands omitted).
