(Chemical Equation Presented) A halide-induced ligand rearrangement around a RhI center can be used for the preparation of heteroligated tweezer-type complexes. By using a variety of P,S- and P,O-hemilabile ligands, the complexes can be interconverted between four different Rh I-coordination environments (see scheme).
