previous analyses of the spectra of related complexes[g1,
these compounds contain OCIO, of C,, symmetry, and
( 4 ) and (5) an uncomplexed CIO,(T,) unit. The molecular
structures of (1) and (2) must prevail also in nonpolar
solvents as suggested by their electronic spectra in benzene,
which are identical with those of the respective complexes
in the solid state as well as very similar to the spectra
(solution and crystals) of the structurally well-established
Note also the striking solubility
difference in benzene between the ionic complexes [( 4 )
and ( S ) , insoluble] and the neutral species [ ( I ) and ( 2 ) ,
soluble]. The latter, by analogy with tr~ns-[MA(C0)L,][~~,
undergo oxidative addition reactions to produce sixcoordinated molecular complexes of tervalent metals['. '].

benzene solution of the reactants and precipitated with

with these complexes, it should be mentioned that crystalline trans[Ir(OC103)(CO)(Ph,P)2] reacts violently with chlorine gas. Needless
to add that all these materials are potentially hazardous and one should
employ only small amounts, avoid high temperatures and provide
adequate shielding and other protective measures. See M . Burton,

particularly on comparison with analogous complexes of
carbocyclic systems. Replacing a carbon atom by a hetero
atom amounts, in a first approximation, to a change in the
electron density distribution in the ligands, and the
influence of such changes can be studied in structural
The first structure determination that we report in this
connection is the X-ray analysis of tricarbonyl(hexaethy1borazine)chromium(O), a compound that is isosteric with
tricarbonyl(hexaethylbenzene)chromium(O). Because of its
bulky ethyl groups, the complex is not the ideal representative of the borazine-metal n-complexes, but it was selected
for investigation because it is the onlv borazine complex
prepared so far that has been obtained in usable single

refined to an R factor of 0.070 by successive approximations ; all the hydrogen atoms were located. The geometry
of the molecular skeleton (Fig. 1) corresponds to that of
tricarbonylbenzenechromium, as predicted by Werner et
a/.[']. However, the structure shows some peculiarities.

The idealized three-fold axis of the tricarbonylchromium
group is perpendicular to the borazine ring. The nitrogen
atoms of the ring are staggered with respect to the carbonyl
groups, and the N-Cr bonds are directed toward the
Cr-(CO) bonds. As in the tricarbonylchromium derivatives of I-methylpyrrole and 1,4-dimethyl-1,2-dihydropyridine, the nitrogen, as the ring atom with the highest
electron density, is trans to a carbonylo group"]. The
mean Cr-N distance amounts to 2.22 A ; this is co!siderably shorter than the Cr-B distances (mean 2.31 A,
Table 1); the difference between these bond lengths
corresponds approximately to the difference between
the covalent radii of boron and nitrogenc3' and it is thus
not permissible to conclude that the boron atoms are
bonded more weakly to the metal than the nitrogen atoms.

The differing Cr-B and Cr-N
bond lengths lead to
puckering of the borazine skeleton. In contrast to the
situation in free hexaethylborazine, which is planar
within experimental errorc4], the two parallel planes
formed by the three boron :toms and the three nitrogen
atoms are separated by 0.07A. The six-membered ring thus
assumes a not very pronounced chair conformation (see
the torsion angles in Table I), which has an effect on the
positions of the ethyl groups. Whereas in free hexaethylb ~ r a z i n e ' the

Stepwise Formation of Bridged Dinuclear
Carbonylmetal Complexes[']
By Heinrich Vahrenkamp and Wnfiied Ehrl[*l
Very few reports have hitherto appeared concerning metal
carbonyls in which two metal atoms are held together only
by an atom that behaves as a Lewis base; their synthesis,
e . g. that of (CO)sW-P(CH3),-Re(CO)sc21 gives rise to
difficulties. In contrast, dinuclear complexes exhibiting
considerable stability, such as (CO)4Fe-P(CH3)zP(CH3)2-Fe(C0),'3], in which the carbonylmetal groups
are linked cia diphosphanes or diarsanes, have been known
for some time. All known complexes of this kind are
symmetrical, i. e. two identical bridging atoms link two
identical metal atoms.
We have now accomplished the stepwise formation of such
complexes having two-membered bridges in which the two
metal atoms are different and the two bridge atoms are
also different. We started with derivatives of hexacarbonylchromium and hexacarbonyltungsten with dimethylphosphido and dimethylarsenido ligands. The reactive complexes (CO),M-E(CH,),-Sn(CH,),
(I), which are readily accessible photochemically, react with the halides
(CH,),E'CI to give the organometallic Lewis bases
(3). Reaction of the complexes (CO),M-E(CH,),Cl
(2) with the tin compounds
likewise leads to (3). Photochemical
reaction of compounds ( 3 ) with a hexacarbonylmetal
affords the dinuclear complexes ( 4 ) in good yield.
below the plane of the ring, in the complex the ethyl group
C(6)-C(16) breaks this alternation. This is possible because
the ring puckering increases the distance between the
methylene carbon atoms C(6) and C(3), and C(6) and C(1),
so that there is no longer strong steric hindrance between
their hydrogen atoms.
As in free borazine['], the bond angles N-B-N
value 115") are smaller than the B-N-B
anFles (mean
124"). The mean of the B-N separations (1.44A) does not
differ from that (1.435k0.002A) in the free borazine'".
However, one of the B-N distances (Table I),
at 1.36 A,
deviates appreciably from the mean value; a similar strong
deviation was foundc6' for the ring distances within a
n-bonded ring in the case of tricarbonyl(hexamethy1benzene)chr?miurn(O),where the C-C distances differ by up to
9/100A ; in neither case is there any immediately obvious
explanaLion of these observations. The Cr-C,,,
at 1.80A, are, within experimental error, the samt as in
tricarbonyl(hexamethylbenzene)chromium(O) (1.80 A) and
indicate a similar donor/acceptor behavior of benzene and
