The cluster compounds [Pt3(μ‐CO)3(PR3)3] act as Lewis bases towards the metal halides of Group XI, MX, Group XII, MX2, and Group XIII, MX3, to form cluster compounds of the composition [{MXn}{Pt3(μ‐CO)3(PR3)3}]. The X‐ray crystal structure, NMR and IR data are given for the compound [{ZnI}{Pt3(μ‐CO)3(PPh(i‐Pr)2)3}].
