Abstract

A complex containing the face-capped octahedral [Re63-Se)8]2+ cluster core, cis-[Re63-Se)8 (PPh3)4(4,4′-dipyridyl)2] (SbF6)2 (1), is used as a ditopic ligand with an enforced right angle between the two 4,4′-dipyridyl moieties for the coordination of Cd2+ ion. Two coordination polymers, [{Re63-Se)8 (PPh3)4 (4,4′-dipyridyl)2}2{Cd- (NO3)2}](SbF6)4 ·21C4H10O·21CH2Cl2 (2) and [{Re63-Se)8 (PPh3)4- (4,4′-dipyridyl)2}{Cd (NO3)3}](NO3) ·2C4H10O·CH2Cl2 (3), are obtained. The relative concentration of Cd2+ determines which species is isolated, and the conversion of the first structure into the second is demonstrated experimentally.
