Abstract

original image

Octanuclear lanthanide–iron clusters: The first lanthanide–carbonyl–sulfide–iron clusters were obtained by redox reactions of [(η5-C5Me5)2Ln(thf)2] (Ln=Sm, Yb) and [Fe2(μ-S2)(CO)6]. The resulting wheel-shaped clusters have 14-membered peripheral rings with [Fe63-S)6(CO)12]2− units in the center (see picture).
