Abstract: The synthesis, spectroscopic characterization and X-ray crystal structure of a newchiral triosmium alkylidyne carbonyl cluster, (R,S)-[Os3(μ-H)2(CO)93-CPPh25-C5H4)Fe(η5-C5H3(PPh2)CH(Me)NMe2)}] (1) are described. Compound 1 crystallizes in thenon-centrosymmetric space group P21 and its absolute configuration has been established.The structure consists of an Os3C metal core with one of the PPh2 moieties of the chiralferrocenylphosphine bonded to the apical alkylidyne carbon atom to give a zwitterioniccluster complex, reminiscent of the phosphorus yli
