The Isolation of a Large Cyclopentadienylcobaltsulfide Cluster. The Synthesis and Crystal Structure of Octahedral closo-(η5-C5H5Co)5S

The title cluster, which was obtained serendipitously when (η5-C5H5)Co(PPh3)2 was added to a (η5-C5H5)Co metallacyclobutene containing a sulfone group, is the largest cluster known, formed primarily with (η5-C5H5)Co vertices. The closo-(η5-C5H5Co)5S is a closed-shell, octahedral cluster which forms black, monoclinic crystals from methanol.
