(Ge2P2)2−: a binary analogue of P4 as a precursor to the ternary cluster anion [Cd3(Ge3P)3]3−

Author affiliations

Abstract

The novel binary P4 analogue (Ge2P2)2− proved to be a suitable precursor for heteroatomic cluster synthesis. Over time in solution, it rearranges to form (Ge7P2)2−, as shown by NMR studies and X-ray diffraction. Reactions of (Ge2P2)2− with CdPh2 afford [K(crypt-222)]3[Cd3(Ge3P)3], containing an unprecedented ternary cluster anion with a triangular Cd3 moiety.
