Efficient formation of homo and hetero metal clusters by triangular trisaloph ligand as a partial template
Homo metal cluster containing seven Zn atoms was efficiently synthesized in high yield via a template effect of a trisaloph ligand and characterized by NMR, MS, X-ray crystallography, etc. The homo cluster can be converted quantitatively to Zn-3 (.) La hetero metal cluster.
