Abstract: The title compound, [Re4(3-OH)4(CO)12]·4C5H5N, crystallizes with one tetranuclear rhenium(I) cubane-like molecule and four pyridine molecules in the asymmetric unit. The coordination environment of each ReI atom is distorted octahedral. Four intramolecular O-HN and four intermolecular C-HO hydrogen-bond interactions are observed. Relatively strong hydrogen bonds are found between the hydrogen-bond donor (3-OH) and acceptor (basic N atom of pyridine), with NO distances between 2.586 (10) and 2.628 (10) Å. Intercube distances of 9.873 (2) and 12.376 (3) Å are observed.
