Abstract

The mixed metal complexes cpRhRu3(µ-H)2(µ-CO) (CO)9 (cp = ?-C5H5 or ?-C 5Me5) and (?-C5Me5)RhRu 3(µ-H)4(CO)9 (in which the four bridging hydrogen atoms have been located in an X-ray structure determination) are formed when H2 is bubbled through solutions of Ru3(CO) 12 and the respective cpRh(CO)2 at 70-90 °C but, under 1 atm CO at 25 °C, are easily disrupted into the starting materials, which are obtained with complete 13C-enrichment under 1 atm 13CO.
