Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The thermolysis of Co2Rh2(CO)12 leads to the quantitative formation of Co3Rh3(CO)16. The solution structures of these clusters have been established by IR and low temperature 13C NMR spectroscopy. Co3Rh3(CO)16 reacts with carbon monoxide at moderate pressure to give the equilibrium mixture of Co2Rh2(CO)12 and CoRh(CO)7.
