The interaction of Re2(CO)10 and Fe3(CO)12, and that of Re2Fe(CO)14 with alumina were studied during thermal treatment by FT-IR spectroscopy. The interaction of Re2Fe(CO)14 with alumina results in the formation of Re-tricarbonyls as in the Re2(CO)10 + Fe3(CO)12 Al2O3 system, even at room temperature. In the view of this fact, the possibility of the action of reactive Fe-monocarbonyls [Fe(CO)5, Fe(CO)4] on the Re2(CO)10 with appearance of a Re2Fe(CO)14 as a transient intermediate on the support, cannot be excluded.
