Abstract

Cyanide clusters [Re12CS17(CN)6] n- (n = 8 or 6), which may be used to form polymeric material, have been prepared by treating ReS2 with molten KCN at 750°C. The cluster unit comprises two {Re6} octahedra connected by three μ2-S bridges and one interstitial μ6-C atom (see picture). (Figure Presented).
