Abstract

The reaction of rhenium(I) diynyl complexes [Re(CO)3(N-N) (C≡C - C≡CH)] [N-N = tBu2bpy (1), bpy (2)] with Co2(CO)8 in THF yielded a new class of luminescent trinuclear rhenium-cobalt mixed-metal alkynyl complexes, [Co2{μ- HC2C≡C[Re(CO)3(N-N)]}(CO)6] [N-N = tBu2bpy (3), bpy (4)]. Their luminescence and electrochemical properties have also been studied. © 2004 Plenum Publishing Corporation.
