A new Au11 cluster with (m-CF3C6H 4)3P ligands has been synthesized and characterized by single crystal X-ray and XPS analysis. The cluster has an incomplete icosahedral skeleton similar to known Au11X3(PR 3)7 clusters, but a stronger distortion from the ideal symmetry has been caused by introducing CF3 substituents at a meta-position of each phenyl ring of PR3 ligands.
