Abstract A detailed investigation of the one-pot synthesis of [NEt4]2[MX3(CO)3] [M=Tc (1a) or Re (1b); X= Cl−, Br−] is presented. The intermediates [NEt4][Tc2-(μ-Cl)3(CO)6] (2a), [NBu4][Tc3(μ3-H)(μ-H)3(CO)9] (3) and [Tc3(μ-H)3(CO)12] (4) have been isolated and characterized. The X-ray structure of (2a) is described. Complex (2a) crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/c with a=19.491(6), b=18.323(2) and c=17.497(9)AÅ, and β=97.59(2)°. Quantitative conversion of (2a), (3) and (4) into the aqua-ion [M(OH2)3(CO)3]+ [M=Tc (5a) or Re (5b)] is described. To evaluate an optimal and simple chelating group for the “fac-M(CO)3” moiety, the reaction with the bidentate thioether ligand Cl(CH2)2S(CH2)2S(CH2)2Cl (qyp) has been investigated and the structure of the neutral complex [ReBr(qyp)(CO)3] (6) is described. Complex (6) crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/c with a=15.935(6), b=2.788(4) and c= 7.955(10)AÅ, and β=98.57(1)°. To extend the knowledge about substitution chemistry of organometallic complexes in aqueous solution, the acetato ligand [OOCCH3]− has been reacted with (1b), resulting in the formation of the dinuclear, acetato-bridged complex [NEt4][Re2(μ-OH)2(μ-OAc)(CO)6], which converted into [Re2(μ-OEt)2(μ-OAc)(CO)6]− (7) after recrystallization from EtOH. The X-ray structure of (7) has been determined. Complex (7) crystallizes in the monoclinic space group P21/c with a=16.288(3), b=12.4272(10) and c=13.620(3)AÅ, and β=76.63(1)°. For a future application of the small “fac-M(CO)3” moiety, it seems thus advantageous to combine these two ligand groups in one simple chelating function.
