Tin–osmium cluster formation with a monomeric tin(II) alkyl: the formation, crystal structure and reactivity of [Os3(µ-H)SnR(CO)10], a formal stannyne complex of the osmium triangle {R = C(SiMe3)2C5H4N-2}

The monomeric tin(II) species SnR2{R = C(SiMe3)2C5H4N-2} reacts with [Os3(H)2(CO)10] in hexane to give [Os3(µ-H)SnR(CO)10]1 quantitatively; 1 is the first formal stannyne complex of the triosmium nucleus, in which the picoline nitrogen is coordinated to the tin atom, and which is itself also reactive, being a potential precursor to high nuclearity SnOs clusters
