Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.

The title compound was reported a decade ago by Zuhayra et al as the main product of the reaction of [Tc2(CO)10] with pyridine at room temperature. Chemical information, coupled to density functional theory calculations, have now been used to show that the "bridging carbonyls" then proposed from the crystallographic data most likely correspond to bridging hydroperoxide groups.
