Different aspects of the work carried out on the Chini-clusters are reviewed here. These are: (1) the uses of platinum clusters for the synthesis of hetero-metal clusters, (2) platinum clusters as mediators in pH-driven transport of sodium ions and electrons through a liquid membrane, and (3) asymmetric hydrogenation of α-ketoesters with cluster derived heterogeneous catalysts.

Molecular orbital calculations (EHMO) have been performed on five ruthenium carbonyl clusters considered to be involved in the reductive carbonylation of nitrobenzene. The bonding in the isocyanate cluster, [HRu3(CO)9(HNCO)]−, is shown to arise mainly from the interaction between the LUMO of HNCO and HOMO of the [HRu3(CO)9]− fragment. The relative stabilities of this cluster, two of its isomers and the CO-eliminated cluster [HRu3(CO)9(HN)]−, are also commented upon. The calculated results are in accordance with empirical kinetic data.
