The tellurido ruthenium carbonyl cluster compounds (Ph4P)2[Ru4Te2(CO)10] (1) and (Ph2P)2[Ru5 Te(CO)14] (2) have been prepared by methanothermal reactions at 80°C using a reaction mixture of Ru3(CO)12, Na2Te2 and Ph4PBr in appropriate molar ratios. Both compounds have pseudo-octahedral cores formed by ruthenium and tellurium atoms.
