The neutral cluster [Ir-6(CO)(15)(AuPPh(3))(2)] has been obtained by reaction of [Ir-6(CO)(15)](2-) with [AuPPh(3)](+). It crystallizes in the triclinic space group P1 with cell constants a = 13.160(2) Angstrom, b = 13.714(4) Angstrom, c 18.266(3) Angstrom, alpha = 65.47(2)degrees, beta = 110.93(2)degrees, gamma = 112.07(1)degrees, V = 2699(2) Angstrom(3), and Z = 2. Data were collected at room temperature to a maximum 2 theta = 54 degrees. The final discrepancy indices were R = 0.032 and R(w) = 0.034 for 7217 independent reflections with I > 3 sigma(I). The structure was solved by direct methods. The iridium atoms of the cluster define an octahedral frame capped by one gold-phosphine group. The second AuPPh(3) unit spans one Ir-Au edge. The metal skeleton of C-1 symmetry is coordinated by twelve terminal and three edge-bridging carbonyl groups. The dianionic [Ir-6(CO)(14)(HgCl)(2)](2-) has been prepared from [Ir-6(CO)(15)](2-) and Hg2Cl2, HgCl2 + Hg, or HgCl2 in the presence of Na2CO3. The salt [PPh(4)](2)[Ir-6(CO)(14)(HgCl)(2)] crystallizes in the monoclinic space group Cc with cell constants a = 10.257(2) Angstrom, b = 46.848(4) Angstrom, c 14.639(3) Angstrom, beta = 107.83(2)degrees, V = 6696(4) Angstrom(3), and Z = 4. Data were collected at room temperature to a maximum 2 theta = 50 degrees. The final discrepancy indices were R = 0.037 and R(w) = 0.036 for 3619 independent reflections with I > 3 sigma(I). The metallic framework forms an octahedron of iridium atoms bearing, on four non-adjacent faces, two mu(3)-HgCl fragments and two mu(3)-CO groups. The chemical shift of the Hg-199 NMR was found at +1508 ppm, and suggests an anomalous oxidation state.
