G. Thiele, M. Balmer, S. Dehnen – 2016
[Rh6Te8(PPh3)6]·4C6H6, the first compound with a molecular Chevrel-type [Rh6Te8] cluster core has been synthesized and structurally characterized. By means of quantum chemical calculation, the close relationship of its electronic configuration to that of the lighter homologue has been demonstrated. The different crystal solvent content prevents an isostructural crystallization.
