Abstract

New ternary Se-Ru-Cu octahedral-based complexes, namely, CuX-capped SeRu5 clusters [SeRu5(CO)143-CuX)]2- (2a-2c; X = Cl, Br, I), bis-CuX-capped SeRu5 clusters [SeRu5(CO)143-CuX)2]2- (3a, 3b; X = Cl, Br), Cu4X2-bridged di-SeRu5 clusters [{SeRu5(CO)14}26-Cu4X2)]2- (4a, 4b; X = Cl, Br), and bis-CuX-incorporated Se2Ru4 clusters [Se2Ru4(CO)10(μ-CuX)2]2- (5a-5c; X = Cl, Br, I), were prepared from the reaction of the binary cluster [SeRu5(CO)14]2- (1) with CuX under appropriate conditions. Their solid-state packing formed cluster-based 1D-supramolecular chains, which were stabilized by C-HX/Y (X = halides; Y = O) H-bonding between CuX/COs of cluster anions and the CH moieties of the [PPh4]+ or [PPN]+ cations. In addition, electrochemical studies showed that the successive anodic shifts were found for 1-4b, tuned by the incoming CuBr fragments introduced into the parent SeRu5 cluster, supported by their decreasing HOMO levels and increasing ionization energies. Solid-state diffuse reflectance spectra showed these Se-Ru-Cu complexes exhibited semiconducting behaviors with the low and tunable energy gaps of 0.82-1.08 eV. Significantly, the solid-state absorptions of 2b and 4b were red-shifted compared with the corresponding Te analogues, which was explained by the larger numbers of the density of states (DOS) close to the HOMO for the selenide cases.
