Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

In crystals of trans-aquacarbonylbis(triphenylphosphine) rhodium(I) perchlorate dichloromethane solvate, the cations and anions are linked through O---H..-O hydrogen bonds to form dimeric [Rh(PPha)2(CO)(OH2)]2[C104]2 units characterized by crystallographically imposed 6',. symmetry. The cationic complex displays a slightly distorted squareplanar geometry around the Rh atom. The water molecule coordinates: the Rh I centre at an Rh--O distance of 2.127 (4) A,.
