In contrast to the increasing family of weak intermolecular interactions in main-group compounds (X-Z···Y, Z = main-group elements), an analysis of the Cambridge Structural Database indicates that electron-saturated (18-electron) transition-metal complexes show reluctance toward weak M bond formation (X-M···Y, M = transition metal). In particular, weak M(More)
A generalized explanation is provided for the existence of the red- and blue-shifting nature of X-Z bonds (Z=H, halogens, chalcogens, pnicogens, etc.) in X-Z∙∙∙Y complexes based on computational studies on a selected set of weakly bonded complexes and analysis of existing literature data. The additional electrons and orbitals available on Z in comparison to(More)
Sextuple bonded group 6 diatomics Cr2 and Mo2 possess ultrashort metal-metal bonds. Yet their bond dissociation energy is very low. The destabilising nature of σ-bonds is responsible for this. Selective extraction of these σ-electrons via a σ-hole on a halogen bond donor shortens and strengthens the metal-metal bond. This study constitutes a hitherto(More)
The Continuum in the variation of the X-Z bond length change from blue-shifting to red-shifting through zero- shifting in the X-Z---Y complex is inevitable. This has been analyzed by ab-initio molecular orbital calculations using Z= Hydrogen, Halogens, Chalcogens, and Pnicogens as prototypical examples. Our analysis revealed that, the competition between(More)
