In reactions of Co4(CO)9(arene) with carbon monoxide, phosphines and acetylenes, displacement of the arene takes place and known derivatives of Co4(CO)12 and Co2(CO)8 are formed. With phosphites, however, displacement of one carbon monoxide can be achieved, to give Co4(CO)8(arene)P(OR)3. The same type of complexes can also be prepared by treatment of Co4(CO)11P(OR)3 with arenes.
