The complex NMe4[Rh(ox)(CO)2] (2) (ox = oxalato) was prepared from NMe4[Rh(ox)(cod)] (1) (cod=cyclo-octa-1,5-diene) by bubbling carbon monoxide and, complex (1) was prepared from Rh 2Cl2(cod)2, oxalic acid, and NMe4OH; the solid state structure of (2) consists of infinite chains of metal atoms [Rh ⋯ Rh ⋯ Rh 175.01(3)°] with equal rhodium-rhodium distances of 3.243(1) Å, the shortest distance found in a stacked rhodium complex.
