The structures 2 and 7 contain spiked ruthenium frameworks with a phosphinidene or arsinidene group co-ordinated to all four metal atoms. The molecular structures of 4 and 9 have been shown to contain two-metal and three-metal fragments joined together by three μ3-phosphinidene (or arsinidene) units. The hydrides in 2 and 7 display similar fluxional behaviour yielding the same values of ΔG‡ (= 49 kJ mol-1). The transformation from 1 to 5, probably via intermediate 2, occurs with increase in nuclearity by the treatment of 1 with [Ru3(CO)12]. Pathways for the formation of cluster 3 from 2, 9 from [Ru4(CO)12(μ-H)2(μ3-AsCF 3)2(μ-AsCF3)] 10, and also 6 from 8 by hydrogenation are discussed.||Source Title:||Journal of the Chemical Society - Dalton Transactions||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/94686||ISSN:||03009246|
