Dalton Trans. 2016 Nov 15;45(45):18346-18355.Five complexes with the generic formula [ReBr(CO)3(κ2-S,S'-S2C·NHC)] were obtained by reacting [ReBr(CO)5] with a set of representative imidazol(in)ium-2-dithiocarboxylate zwitterions. These ligands are the adducts of N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) and carbon disulfide. The monometallic Re(i) compounds were further coupled with Na[Re(CO)5] to afford bimetallic Re(0) species. Depending on the experimental conditions, either octacarbonyl dimers [Re2(CO)8(μ2-κ1-S,κ1-S'-S2C·NHC)] or hexacarbonyl clusters [Re2(CO)6(κ2-S,S'-κ3-S,C,S'-S2C·NHC)] were isolated. Read More
