The cyclo-Sb6 ring in the [Sb6(RuCp*)2]2− ion

Author affiliations


The [Sb6(RuCp*)2]2− (1) anion represents the first example of a Zintl cluster with a boat-like cyclo-Sb6 subunit and the first ruthenium polyantimonide complex. The anion is dynamic in solution and fragments in the gas phase. Structural parameters and DFT calculations suggest the possibility of Sb[double bond, length as m-dash]Sb double bond character.
