A new series of molybdenum cluster compounds of the general formula AxMo5As4(A = Cu, Al, or Ga) has been synthesized. They are isostructural with the host Mo5As4(Ti5Te4-type) consisting of trans-vertex shared Mo6 octahedral chains. Investigations by X-ray photoelectron and Auger electron spectroscopies revealed a charge transfer from A to Mo5As4 in AxMo5As4. The occurrence of metallic (CuxMo5As4) and non-metallic (Al2Mo5As4 and Ga2Mo5As4) properties in this isostructural series of solids is consistent with the electronic structure of Ti5Te4-type solids involving M–M bonding in the cluster chains.
