The hitherto unknown series of complexes fac-[Re(CO)(3)Br{R2P(S)P(S)R-2}] 1a-5a (1a, R = Me; 2a, R = Et; 3a, R = Pr-n; 4a, R = Bu-n; 5a, R = Ph) and [Re-2(CO)(8)Br-2{cis-mu-R2P(S)P(S)R-2}] 1b-5b [1b, R = Me; 2b, R = Et; 3b, R = Pr-n; 4b, R = Bu-n; 5b, R = Ph] have been prepared by the photochemical reaction of Re(CO)(5)Br with R2P(S)P(S)R-2. The complexes have been characterized by elemental analysis, mass spectroscopy (EI), FT-IR and P-31{H-1} NMR spectrometry. The spectroscopic studies suggest cis-chelate bidentate coordination of the ligand in fac-[Re(CO)(3)Br{R2P(S)P(S)R-2}] and cis-bridging bidentate coordination of the ligand between two metals in [Re-2(CO)(8)Br-2{cis-mu-R2P(S)P(S)R-2}] (R = Me, Et, Pr-n, Bu-n, Ph). An X-ray diffraction study of [ReBr(CO)(3)(Et2P(S)P(S)Et-2)] confirms that the rhenium, adopts a distorted octahedral geometry with local C-5 symmetry. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd.
