A new water-soluble and acid-stable dinuclear organoiridium(III) dinitrate complex [{Cp*Ir(NO3)}2(μ-Cl)2] (1, Cp* = η5-C5Me5) was synthesized by the reaction of a water-insoluble organoiridium(III) complex [(Cp*IrCl)2(μ-Cl)2] (2) with two equivalents of AgBF4 in aqueous nitric acid (1 M HNO3/H2O) at 23°C for 12h. The structure of 1 with two monodentate NO3 - ligands is discussed in comparison with structure of a mononuclear organoiridium(III) complex with one monodentate and one bidentate NO 3- ligands, [Cp*Ir(NO3)2] (3).
