Abstract

An unprecedented Mo/Cu/S cluster, [Et4N]4[Mo3Cu6S14] (1) was obtained from the smaller cluster, [Ph4P]2[MoS4CuCl], in the presence of aqueous solution of tetraethylammonium hydroxide in DMF/i-propanol by self-rearrangement. The crystal structure shows that butterfly-shaped {MoS4Cu2S2} fragments are connected via μ3-S atoms to form a cage-like structure, [Mo3Cu6S14]4–. The rearrangement of the Mo/Cu/S cluster may reflect the structural instability of Orange protein (ORP) cofactor.
