The bimetallic, decanuclear Ni3 Ga7 -cluster of the formula [Ni3 (GaTMP)3 (µ2 -GaTMP)3 (µ3 -GaTMP)] (1, TMP=2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidinyl) reacts reversibly with dihydrogen under the formation of a series of (poly-)hydride clusters 2. Low-temperature 2D NMR experiments at -80 °C show that 2 consist of a mixture of a di- (2Di ), tetra- (2Tetra ) and hexahydride species (2Hexa ). The structures of 2Di and 2Tetra are assessed by a combination of 2D NMR spectroscopy and DFT calculations. The cooperation of both metals is essential for the high hydrogen uptake of the cluster. Polyhydrides 2 are catalytically active in the semihydrogenation of 4-octyne to 4-octene with good selectivity. The example is the first of its kind and conceptually relates properties of molecular, atom-precise transition metal/main group metal clusters to the respective solid-state phase in catalysis.

The host-guest system TCNQ@Cu3BTC2 (TCNQ = 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane, BTC = 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylate) is a striking example of how semiconductivity can be introduced by guest incorporation in an otherwise insulating parent material. Exhibiting both microporosity and semiconducting behavior such materials offer exciting opportunities as next-generation sensor materials. Here, we apply a solvent-free vapor phase loading under rigorous exclusion of moisture, obtaining a series of the general formula xTCNQ@Cu3BTC2 (0 ≤ x ≤ 1.0). By using powder X-ray diffraction, infrared and X-ray absorption spectroscopy together with scanning electron microscopy and porosimetry, we provide the first structural evidence for a systematic preferential arrangement of TCNQ along the (111) lattice plane and the bridging coordination motif to two neighbouring Cu-paddlewheels, as was predicted by theory. For 1.0TCNQ@Cu3BTC2 we find a specific electrical conductivity of up to 1.5 × 10-4 S cm-1 whilst maintaining a high BET surface area of 573.7 m2 g-1. These values are unmatched by MOFs with equally high electrical conductivity, making the material attractive for applications such as super capacitors and chemiresistors. Our results represent the crucial missing link needed to firmly establish the structure-property relationship revealed in TCNQ@Cu3BTC2, thereby creating a sound basis for using this as a design principle for electrically conducting MOFs.
