The emphasis of this project is on metal-to-metal multiple bonds, particularly on metal-to-metal quadruple and double bonds. With the help of x-ray crystallography the first compound containing multiple metal-to-metal bonds was found to contain triangular Re3 groups in which the rhenium-rhenium distances(2.49A) are much shorter than those(2.75A) in metallic rhenium.
