The reactions of [(n-C4H9)4N] [ReOBr4(OPPh3)] with the appropriate tridentate and monodentate thiolate ligands yield the '3 + 1' oxorhenium(V) complexes [ReO(SCH2CH2OCH2CH2S)(SCH 2C6H4-4-OMe)] (1), [ReO(SCH2CH2OCH2CH2S)(SC 5H4NH)]Br (2) and [Re2O2(SCH2CH2OCH2CH 2S)3] (3). The versatility of this approach for the synthesis of oxorhenium(V) core complexes is manifest in the preparations of the cationic complex of 2 and of the thiolate bridged binuclear complex 3.
