An approach to tackle the synthesis of mixed-transition metal tantalum chalcogenide clusters is described. The synthesis of 1/ [Li3(TaSe4)(MeCN)4] (1) will in future allow the construction of Ta-Se-transition metal clusters. The potential of this route was demonstrated by the synthesis of the mixed-metal Ta-S-Fe and Ta-S-Cu complexes (Et4N) 3[Fe2(SPh)4(TaS4)] (2) and [Cu 3(TaS4)(PPh3)4] (3).
