Dirac molecular spinor calculations on the Re2Cl 8 2-, Re2Br8 2-, Os 2Cl8 2- (both staggered and eclipsed isomers), Os2Br8 2- and Os2I8 2- cluster ions are reported. Here we report the calculations of the spin-orbit splitting affecting the metal and ligand core-like states and also affecting the π and δ metal-metal bonds. We also compare the calculated molecular spin-orbit splitting against the calculated atomic spin-orbit splitting, and, against available experimental data.
