Unusual underground Capping Carbonyl Clusters of Palladium

  •  Enos Kiremire    


Transition metal carbonyls form unlike boranes a wide range of clusters. High nuclearity carbonyl clusters have a tendency to form capped clusters. Using the method of series explained in this paper, many capped carbonyl clusters have been identified for group 7, 8, 9 and 10 transition metals such as rhenium, osmium, rhodium and palladium. The series have discovered that palladium form exclusively capped carbonyl clusters. Furthermore, it has been discovered that some of the capped clusters have negative nuclear closo function. Such carbonyls have been regarded as capping underground. This paper presents the unique characteristic of high nuclearity capping carbonyl clusters of palladium.
