Abstract

The new tetrahedral complex Os4(CO)12[Pd(PBu 3t)]4, 3, was obtained from the reaction of Os3(CO)12 with Pd(PBu3t)2 in octane solution at reflux. Compound 3 was characterized by IR, 1H and 31P NMR spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. The electronic structure of 3 was evaluated by Fenske-Hall molecular orbital analysis. Compound 3 is electronically unsaturated and reacts with hydrogen at room temperature to yield the known compound Os4(CO)12(μ-H)4, 4.
