Abstract: New clusters [Ru3(μ-H)(CO)10(μ-RNNNR)] (R = p-C6F4X; X = F 1, Br 2, I 3 or H 4) were obtained from reactions of RN=NNHR with [Ru3(CO)12] in toluene at 80 °C under vacuum, while the linear triosmium clusters [Os3(CO)11Cl(η2-RNNNR)] (R = p-C6F4X; X = F 5, Br 6, I 7 or H 8) were obtained from RN=NNHR with [Os3(CO)11(NCMe)] in CH2Cl2 at 60 °C under vacuum. The crystal structures of [Ru3-(μ-H)(CO)10(μ-C6F 5NNNC6F5)] 1 and [Os3(CO)11Cl(η2-C6F 5NNNC6F5)] 5 have been determined by single-crystal X-ray crystallography. The structure of 1 shows that the triazenide ligand bridges one Ru-Ru vector in the cluster at axial sites and forms a five-membered ring with π delocalization over the whole system. A hydride ligand was located which bridges another Ru-Ru vector equatorially and displays interesting fluxionality in solution. The chloride ligand in complex 5 co-ordinates equatorially at the first Os atom, while the triazenide occupies an axial and an equatorial site on the third Os in the linear cluster and forms a four-membered ring with π delocalization over the whole system. The linear cluster [Os3H(CO)11-(η2-C6F 5NNNC6F5)], precursor of 5, was also obtained. Carbon-13 NMR studies of this cluster and the mechanism of its formation are reported.
