Abstract

The gas electron diffraction data of tetramethyloxorhenium, (CH3)4ReO, recorded with a nozzle temperature of about 30°C are consistent with the molecular symmetry C4v. Least-square refinements yield the bond distances (ra) ReO = 168.2(3) pm and ReC = 211.7(3) pm and the valence angles ∠CReC = 82(1)° and ∠CReO = 112(1)°.
