Abstract

{Dimeric rhodium(I) bis(carbonyl) chloride, [Rh(CO)(2)(mu-Cl)](2), is found to be a useful and convenient starting material for the syntheses of new cationic carbonyl complexes of both rhodium(l) and rhodium(III). Its reaction with the Lewis acids AlCl3 or GaCl3 produces in a CO atmosphere at room temperature the salts [Rh(CO)(4)][M2CI7] (M = Al, Ga), which are characterized by Raman spectroscopy and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Crystal data for [Rh(CO)(4)][Al2Cl7]: triclinic, space group P1 (No. 2); a = 9.705(3)
