Dirhenium dodecarbonyl is an inorganic compound with the formula Re2(CO)10. Commercially available, it is used as a starting point for the synthesis of many rhenium carbonyl complexes. It was first reported in 1941 by Walter Hieber who prepared it by carbonylation of Re2O7. The compound consists of a pair of square pyramidal Re(CO)5 units joined via a Re-Re bond. Mn2(CO)10 and Tc2(CO)10 adopt the same structure.
Additional recommended knowledge
When bromine is used, bromopentacarbonylrhenium(I) is formed; it is itself an intermediate for many more rhenium complexes.
