The recent report of a stable, crystalline compound with a quintuply bonded chromium–chromium core may reopen the debate on the nature of the multiple bonds between transition metals that was initiated by the discovery of a stable, quadruple bond by Cotton et al. in 1964. Although a recent study of a quintuple bond in the uranium dimer U2 provided strong support for the existence of such bonds, the isolation of the stable [Ar’CrCrAr’] species (Ar’= 2,6-(2,6iPr2-C6H3)2-C6H3), which has a planar… Expand
