Abstract

[Au_2(C_(26)H_(48)P_2h](PF_6)_2, M_r = 1529·1, tetragonal, P4n2, ɑ= 15·917 (5), c = 12-448 (1) A, V = 3154 (1) A3 , Z = 2, Dx = 1·61 g cm^(-3), λ(Mo Ka) = 0·71073 A, μ = 50·1 cm^(-1), F(000) = 1528, room temperature (297 K), R = 0·064 for 3525 reflections with F/_o^2 > 0,0·038 for 2440 with F/_o^2 > 3σ(F/_o^2). This [Au_2(C_26)H_(48)P_2)_2] (PF_6)_2 compound shows a strong luminescence in the solid state at 77 K. The cation consists of two Au atoms joined by two bis (dicyclohexylphosphino )ethane links, with one Au atom and one half of a link being the asymmetric unit. The Au-Au distance [2·936 (1) Å] is only slightly longer than the 2·884 Å found in gold metal, indicative of substantial metal-metal bonding.
