Quintuply-bonded dichromium(I) complexes featuring metal-metal bond lengths of 1.74 A.
A series of complexes of the form [Cr2{m-h -ArNC(R)NAr}2], which all exhibit very short Cr Cr quintuple-bond lengths of approximately 1.74, are reported, from which metal–metal quintuple bonds are expected. Expand
The chemistry of univalent metal β-diketiminates
Abstract The easily electronically and sterically tunable β-diketiminates are widely used auxiliary ligands for the creation of a wide range of metal complexes with various oxidation states in allExpand
Remarkably short metal-metal bonds: a lantern-type quintuply bonded dichromium(I) complex.
The use of amidinate ligand ArNC(H)NAr (Ar= 2,6-C6H3(CH3)2) to stabilize mixed-valent Cr2 3+ complex [Cr2(ArNC( H)N Ar)3] (2) with formal Cr Cr bond order of 4.0). Expand
Journey from Mo-Mo quadruple bonds to quintuple bonds.
The Mo-Mo quintuple bonding characters are corroborated by DFT calculations at the level of BP86/def2-TZVP and BP86/(Cl(2)Li(OEt(2))][mu-eta(2)-RC(N-2,6-i-Pr (2)C(6)H(3))(2)]( 2) (R = H (1), Ph (2)). Expand
Inverted-sandwich dichromium(I) complexes supported by two beta-diketiminates: a multielectron reductant and syntheses of chromium dioxo and imido.
1 behaves as a two-Cr(Nacnac) synthetic equivalents upon reaction with appropriate substrates, and is therefore an 8-electron reductant. Expand
On the origin of selective nitrous oxide N-N bond cleavage by three-coordinate molybdenum(III) complexes.
Stopped-flow kinetic measurements revealed the reaction to be first order in both Mo(N[R]Ar)(3) and N(2)O, consistent with a mechanism featuring post-rate-determining dinuclear N-N bond scission, but also consistent with cleavage of the N- N bond at a single metal center in a mechanism requiring the intermediacy of nitric oxide.

Synthesis and reactions of beta-diketiminato divanadium(I) inverted-sandwich complexes.
V(Nacnac) behaves as a source of V and a multi-electron reductant in the two reactions studied in this report. Expand
Bond characterization on a Cr-Cr quintuple bond: a combined experimental and theoretical study.
A combined experimental and theoretical charge density study on a quintuply bonded dichromium complex, Cr(2)(dipp)(2) (dipp = (Ar)NC(H)N(Ar) and Ar = 2,6-i-Pr(2)-C(6)H(3), which confirms the existence of a quintuple bond. Expand
A Cyclometalated Resting State for a Reactive Molybdenum Amide: Favorable Consequences of β-Hydrogen Elimination Including Reductive Cleavage, Coupling, and Complexation
Dimethylamide ligation of molybdenum(III) supports Mo{triple{underscore}bond}Mo triple bond formation, and N-tert-butylanilide ligation engenders reactive yet isolable monomeric three-coordinationExpand
Structural transformations in dinuclear zinc complexes involving Zn-Zn bonds.
The mechanism of the observed structural transformations arising from the Zn-Zn bond formation involving the intermediate of [Zn(2)(mu-eta(2)-Me(2)Si(NDipp)(2))(2)](-) was elucidated by elaborate computations. Expand
