2004 (English)In: Angewandte Chemie International Edition, ISSN 1433-7851, E-ISSN 1521-3773, Vol. 43, no 19, 2540-2543 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
An almost perfect square-antiprismatic geometry is observed for Sb 82+ (see picture), as predicted by the Wade rules. The title compound, which was synthesized in benzene at room temperature, represents the first homopolyatomic antimony cation and has Sb-Sb bond lengths of 285-300 pm.
