The structure of a new type of phosphorus-selenium containing eight-membered heterocyclic compound, 1,2,3,5,7-pentaselena-4,6,8-triphosphocane, was unambiguously determined by the X-ray analysis as the revised structure for the 3,4,5-triselenoxo-1,2-diselena-3,4,5-triphospholane, which had been previously proposed as a selenation reagent of amides to selenoamides.
