Abstract

Acetonitrile bound to and activated by the Lewis acidic [Re-6(mu(3)-Se)(8)](2+) cluster core was transformed into acetamidine in quantitative yield using NH3 as the nucleophile at room temperature: The amidine ligand was removed by treating the cluster-acetamidine complexes with trifluoroacetic acid in CH3CN, affording amidinium trifluoroacetate and the starting acetonitrile complexes.
