Dynamic Permutational Isomerism in a closo-Cluster

Fu, Junhong; Morshedi, Mahbod; Moxey, Graeme J; Barlow, Adam; Cifuentes, Marie P; Humphrey, Mark


Permutational isomers of trigonal bipyramidal [W2RhIr2(CO)9(η(5)-C5H5)2(η(5)-C5HMe4)] result from competitive capping of either a W2Ir or a WIr2 face of the tetrahedral cluster [W2Ir2(CO)10(η(5)-C5 H5)2] from its reaction with [Rh(CO)2(η(5)-C5HMe4)]. The permutational isomers slowly interconvert in solution by a cluster metal vertex exchange that is proposed to proceed by Rh-Ir and Rh-W bond cleavage and reformation, and via the intermediacy of an edge-bridged tetrahedral transition state.
