Abstract

The carbene cluster complex Os3(CO)9[C-(H)NMe2](μ-SPh)(μ-H) (2) has been synthesized in 66% yield by the reaction of Os3(CO)10(μ-SPh)(μ-H) with CH2-(NMe2)2. Photodecarbonylation of 2 leads to formation of the compound Os3(CO)8(μ-C=NMe2)(μ-SPh)(μ-H) (3) in 37% yield by an a-CH bond activation in the carbene ligand.
