Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Protonation of aqueous acetone solutions of [Cp*Ir(CN)3]- produces the two-dimensional organometallic solid (H3O-[Cp*Ir(CN)3]·Me2CO wherein 14 Å diameter channels (Ir4C8N8O4) contain exchangeable solvent molecules; the analogous Ru and Rh tricyanide complexes are also susceptible to proton-induced polymerization.
