Discovering complexes containing a metal-metal quintuple bond: from theory to practice.
Although the field of metal-to-metal multiple bonding has been considered as mature, it was recently reinvigorated by the discovery of quintuple bonded dinuclear complexes. Initiated by theoreticalExpand
Theory, synthesis and reactivity of quintuple bonded complexes.
This perspective reviews recent advances in the newly discovered metal-to-metal quintuple bonded complexes. The idea of the structures of the metal-metal quintuple bonded complexes was initiated byExpand
The lengths of the metal-to-metal quintuple bonds and reactivity thereof
Abstract This article reviews factors affecting the metal–metal bond lengths in the quintuple bonded complexes and reactivity thereof. The metal–metal bond length is the most intriguing metric in theExpand
Ligand-Unsupported Cuprophilicity in the Preparation of Dodecacopper(I) Complexes and Raman Studies.
Synthesis and characterization of two dodecacopper(I) extended metal atom chains (EMAC) assembled by two hexadentate bis(pyridylamido)amidinate-supported hexacopper(I) string complexes (monomers) viaExpand
Cuprophilic Interactions in and between Molecular Entities.
Despite being weak attractive forces, closed-shell metallophilic interactions play important roles in the Group 11 metal complexes on their diverse structural and physical features. A plethora ofExpand
Reductive Cleavage of Acyl Halides to Carboxylato Alkylidyne Complexes from Their Reactions with the Quintuply Bonded Dimolybdenum Amidinate
Mediated by Lewis acids, a Friedel–Crafts type of addition of acyl chlorides to alkynes gives β-chloro α,β-unsaturated ketones, which are important precursors to the preparation of heterocycles. AExpand
