Abstract

Two new octahedral molybdenum cluster cyanide complexes with mixed selenide/halide ligands in the cluster core, Cs5[Mo 6Se3.6Cl4.4(CN)6] (1) and Cs 5[Mo6Se3.4Br4.6(CN)6] (2), have been synthesized by the reaction of Mo6Cl12 or Mo6Br12 with an aqueous solution of Cs2Se 3, and then with an aqueous solution of KCN. Both compounds have been characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction methods. The compounds are isostructural and crystallize in the trigonal space group P3c1 with two formula units per unit cell. The unit cell dimensions at 153 K are a = 9.8895(9) Å, c = 19.395(3) Å, V = 1642.7(3) Å3 (1) and a = 9.9805(9) Å, c = 19.763(2) Å, V = 1704.9(3) Å3 (2).
