We have prepared a new monometallic rhenium(I) carbonyl, the complex [P,N-{(C6H5)2 (C5H 5N)P}Re(CO) 3Br] by direct reaction of (Re(CO) 3Br(THF)) 2 and the ligand (C6H 5)2 (C5H5N)P The structure in the complex shows the pyridinic-phosphine ligand in a chelating mode, occupying cis positions around the rhenium octahedral environment. The molecule displays an absorption band centered at 315 nm which has been assigned to a MLCT transition, and a luminescence quantum yield of 0.001.
