Structural analyses for the title compounds, (OC-6-32)-tricarbonylchlorobis(pyridine-N)rhenium(I), [ReCl-(C5H5N)2(CO)3], and (OC-6-32)-tricarbonylchlorobis-(4,4′-bipyridine-N)rhenium(I), [ReCl(C10H8N2)2(CO)3], show that both complexes have the expected facoctahedral geometry. The bipyridine complex has local C2 symmetry, with the rotation axis bisecting the N - Re - N′ and OC - Re - CO angles. In contrast with closely related tetrameric assemblies which crystallize as porous channel-containing structures, the title compounds form dense crystals which are packed in a herring-bone fashion.
