Boron Clusters with Transition Metal-Hydrogen Bonds

  title={Boron Clusters with Transition Metal-Hydrogen Bonds},
  author={Russell N. Grimes},
Transition metal hydride chemistry has experienced enormous growth and impact in recent decades,(1) accelerated by the widespread interest in these species as homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts. This work has paralleled the rapid development of metallaborane and metallacarborane chemistry,(2) and it was inevitable that the two fields would overlap and that metal-boron clusters having metal-hydrogen bonds would be discovered. What was not really foreseen, however, was the vast scope of… CONTINUE READING
