The solvents were freshly distilled under nitrogen from the appropriate drying reagents. Phosphonium and ammonium salts were dried in vacuum :it I X0 'C. Other reactants were used as received from the suppliers. 1 7 ZrX, ( X = CI: 0.466 g. 2.0 mmol: X = Br: 0.822 g, 2.0 mmol) was reduced with Bu ,SnH I1.OZ mL. 4.0 mmol) in benzene or toluene (20 mL) for 36 h. The resulting rcd-brown precipitate (dark blue for X = Br) was washed with two portions of freshly distilled toluene or benzene (each 10 mL) to remove excess Bu,SnH. Addition oI'R,A'X- in CH,CN or CH,CI, afforded 1 in about 30% yield. Approximately SO'!. of starting material was unredcted and isolated as [R,A],[ZrX,]. Addition of P R , to the red-brown precipitate yielded a purple solution of compound 6 and e purple precipitate. Compounds 2 were isolated in about 1 5 % yield by dissolviiig thc purple precipitate in CH,CI, and layering with hexane. When phosphenes with ii higher number of carbon atoms (i.e., PBu,, P(lBu),Ph) were used. the only iwlable products from crystallization were compounds 3 in about I S % qield. Compounds 2 were converted into compounds 4 by treating with [R,A]'CI- in ober 90% yield. Compounds 2 were also converted gradually into compounds 5 in McCN solution at room temperature over a period of 30 days in about 50"4 yield. When compounds 2 were further reduced with Na/Hg in the prescnce of PR, compounds 7 were formed in yields of about 20%. ' H NMR rneiasurements were made at 200 MHz on a Varian XL-200 spectrometer. Hydridc signals were detected at 6 = 3.07 for [Zr,CI,,HJ- and a t 6 = - 5.19 for [Zr,CI,,H,]" in CH ,CN. X-ray data were collected on an Enraf-Nonius CAD4 dii'fi-iictoineter o r Enrdf-Nonius FR590 area detector. Full reports on the structures will be published elsewhere at a later time. ~ ~ Received: April 18. 1995 [Z7891IE] German version: Angeu..

The cathodic dissolution technique is based on the constant discharge of tellurometalate anions into the cathodic cell from the metal telluride electrode by application of a steadily increasing potential at room temperature; once sufficient concentration has been achieved, crystallization may occur in that chamber. The solvent extraction technique involves the high-temperature fusion of an alkali metal with the desired elements for the tellurometalate, followed by extraction with polar solvents such as ethylmediamine. We have developed another synthetic route tor the preparation of tellurometalates, namely a chemical reduction method in which binary metal tellurides are reduced in liquid NH, by K in the presence of an encapsulating ligand.["] Through the use of a chemical reducing agent, such as K, the potential remains constant and is lower than is usual for cathodic dissolution experiments. Through the use of liquid NH, as the solvent, the reductions occur at much lower temperatures than are commonly used in the solvent extraction method or in redox reactions in organic solvents, for example in the preparation of [Ba(en),],[As,Te,] in refluxing ethylenediamine (en) .[201 For this chemical reduction method to work an alkali-metal sequestering agent is necessary, since encapsulation of the cation helps to prevent tight-ion pairing that otherwise would cause reversion of the compounds formed to insoluble materials.[8.211 The features of lower reduction potential and lower temperature in this chemical reduction method may enable the preparation of tellurometalates that are not accessible by other techniques. We illustrate that here with the synthesis and structural characterization of two new tellurometalates 1 and 2. K[K(crown-6)],[GaTe3] . 2CH,CN [(NEt,),][In,Te,] 1 . 0.5Et20 2 Compound 1 was obtained as yellow plates from the chemical reduction of Ga,Te,. Its crystal structure includes two [K(crown-6)]+ ions, one K + ion, and two CH,CN solvent molecules per [GaTe,13- ion. The [GaTe,13- ion, which has a crystallographically imposed mirror plane through atoms G a and Te(l), consists of a trigonal planar arrangement of Te atoms about a central G a atom (Fig. 1). The Ga-Te distances are 2.495(3) and 2.513(2) A, the Te-Ga-Te angles are 114.76(11) and 122.38(6)", and the G a atom lies 0.10 8, above the plane of the three Te atoms. These small distortions from strict trigonal planar geometry may be a result of the differing environments of the Te atoms. For example, the K + ion, K(4), IS 3.429(1) A from Te(1) and 3.797(1)8, from Te(2). The Ga-Te distances in [GaTe,13- are similar to those reported for [PPh,][GaTe,(en),] (2.509(1) A),[61but are signifi-cantly shorter than those in the intermetallic compounds GaTe (average, 2.665(2) A),1221 Gd,Te, (2.641(1) A),[221 and K,Ga,Te, (2.591 and Te(2) 2.680 A).r231Among the combinations of Group 13 (M) and Group 16 (Q) elements there are number of isolated [MQ3I3- ions found Fig. I .
