An organometallic Au-13 cluster having two sigma-bonded acetylide ligands was synthesized and its structure was determined by X-ray crystallography. Absorption spectral studies indicated the presence of electronic coupling between the superatomic Au-13 core and the acetylide pi-orbitals, which was supported by theoretical considerations.
