Multiple Bonds between Main Group Elements and Transition Metals, CXIV. — Organorhenium(VII) Oxides Alkylrhenium(VII) oxides of formulae RReO3 and RReO3 · L (L = quinuclidine) result from dirhenium heptaoxide and dialkylzinc compounds at low temperatures in THF solution. Unbranched, noncyclic organorhenium oxides prove to be less thermolabile than branched‐chain derivatives, with the thermal stability decreasing with increasing chain length. Complexes with branched carbon chains normally can be isolated as 1:1 adducts of a nitrogen base, e.g. quinuclidine. A first chiral alkylmetal oxide and base‐stabilized cyclopropyltrioxorhenium(VII) are also described.
