Photoactive transition metal compounds that are prone to reversible redox reactions are important for myriad applications, including catalysis, optoelectronics and sensing. This article describes chemical and electro-chemical methods to prepare cluster complex (Bu4N)[{Mo6I8}Cl6], a rear example of 23ē cluster complex within the family of octahedral clusters of Mo, W, and Re. The low temperature and room temperature crystal structures, electronic structure and the magnetic, optical and electrochemical properties of this complex are described.
