Abstract

{The reactions of either bis(mu-chloro)tetracarbonyldirhodium(I), [Rh(CO)(2()mu-Cl)](2), or chlorotricarbonyliridium(I), [Ir(CO)(3)Cl](n), in the conjugate Bronsted-Lewis superacid HF-SbF5 and in a CO atmosphere, produce [Rh-(CO)(5)Cl][Sb2F11](2) or [Ir(CO)(5)Cl][Sb2F11](2), respectively. In these oxidative carbonylation reactions, antimony(V) fluoride functions as an oxidizing agent. The reduced product is identified as 6SbF(3). 5SbF(5). [Rh(CO)(5)Cl][Sb2F11]2 is obtained in the form of single crystals. Crystal data: monoclinic, space group P2(1) (No. 4); a = 9.721(1)
