 Title    Sc5Re2C7, a Complex Carbide with C3-Units  
 Abstract    The title com pound was obtained by arc melting o f the elemental com ponents and subse­ quent annealing in a high frequency furnace. It crystallizes with the orthorhombic space group Cmmm, a = 779.26(7) pm, b = 1362.0(1) pm, c = 320.62(3) pm, V = 0.3403 nm3, Z -2. The structure was determined from single-crystal X-ray data and refined to a residual o f R = 0.021 (692 F values and 21 variables). It is closely related to the NaCl-structure. Three o f the seven carbon atom s per formula unit form linear C3-units with C -C bond lengths o f 134 pm. They are coordinated to ten Sc atom s forming bicapped quadratic prisms. Additional isolated C atoms are located in octahedral voids formed by four Sc and two Re atoms. Together with the Re atom s they form tw o-dim ensionally infinite [Re2C4"~]" polyanions. The Re atoms have highly distorted tetrahedral carbon coordination with R e -C bond lengths o f 200 and 208 pm corresponding to bond orders o f about two. This coordination seems to be compatible with the 18-electron rule. The near-neighbour coordination o f the Re atoms is assymmetric. It is suggested that this is due to the space requirements o f nonbonding electrons. Samples o f Sc5Re2C7 are sem iconducting and weakly paramagnetic.
