Interconversion of quadruply and quintuply bonded molybdenum complexes by reductive elimination and oxidative addition of dihydrogen.
Transition metal complexes that exhibit multiple metal–metal bonding are of fundamental importance in chemistry. Following decades of intense scrutiny of double, triple, and quadruple metal–metalExpand
Zn-Zn-bonded compounds that contain monoanionic oxygen-donor ligands.
The last years have witnessed renewed interest in the study of molecular compounds that present a metal–metal bond between atoms of Group 12 metals. For zinc, following the initial report on theExpand
Experimental and theoretical studies on arene-bridged metal-metal-bonded dimolybdenum complexes.
The bis(hydride) dimolybdenum complex, [Mo2(H)2{HC(N-2,6-iPr2C6H3)2}2(thf)2], 2, which possesses a quadruply bonded Mo2(II) core, undergoes light-induced (365 nm) reductive elimination of H2 andExpand
Terphenyl complexes of molybdenum and tungsten with quadruple metal-metal bonds and bridging carboxylate ligands.
Mono- and bis-terphenyl complexes of molybdenum and tungsten with general composition M2(Ar')(O2CR)3 and M2(Ar')2(O2CR)2, respectively (Ar' = terphenyl ligand), that contain carboxylate groupsExpand
Chemical reactivity and electrochemistry of metal-metal-bonded zincocenes.
Attempts to prepare mixed-ligand zinc-zinc-bonded compounds that contain bulky C(5)Me(5) and terphenyl groups, [Zn(2)(C(5)Me(5))(Ar')], lead to disproportionation. The resulting half-sandwich Zn(II)Expand
Quadruply bonded dimolybdenum complexes with highly unusual geometries and vacant coordination sites.
New quadruply bonded dimolybdenum complexes of the terphenyl ligand Ar(Xyl(2)) (Ar(Xyl(2)) = C(6)H(3)-2,6-(C(6)H(3)-2,6-Me(2))(2)) have been prepared and structurally characterized. The stericExpand
Lithium Di- and trimethyl dimolybdenum(II) complexes with Mo-Mo quadruple bonds and bridging methyl groups.
New dimolybdenum complexes of composition [Mo2{μ-Me}2Li(S)}(μ-X)(μ-N^N)2] (3a-3c), where S = THF or Et2O and N^N represents a bidentate aminopyridinate or amidinate ligand that bridges the quadruplyExpand
Experimental and computational studies of the molybdenum-flanking arene interaction in quadruply bonded dimolybdenum complexes with terphenyl ligands.
To clarify the nature of the Mo-Carene interaction in terphenyl complexes with quadruple Mo-Mo bonds, ether adducts of composition [Mo2 (Ar')(I)(O2 CR)2 (OEt2)] have been prepared and characterizedExpand
Synthesis and structure of mixed carboxylate-aminopyridinate and -amidinate complexes of dimolybdenum and ditungsten
Abstract We describe in this paper the synthesis and structural characterization of dimolybdenum and ditungsten complexes with M M bonds derived from the metal–metal bonded tetracarboxylatesExpand
An Unsaturated Four-Coordinate Dimethyl Dimolybdenum Complex with a Molybdenum-Molybdenum Quadruple Bond.
We describe the synthesis and the molecular and electronic structures of the complex [Mo2 Me2 {μ-HC(NDipp)2 }2 ] (2; Dipp=2,6-iPr2 C6 H3 ), which contains a dimetallic core with an Mo-Mo quadrupleExpand
