  • Methane Loosely Bound For the most part, molecular bonds involve sharing of electrons between two discrete atoms. In certain cases, however, a third atom can also attract a portion of the electron density without fully cleaving the bond. Such loose complexes between C-H bonds and transition metals are often invoked as short-lived intermediates in metal-catalyzed reactions of hydrocarbons, though they are rarely observed directly. Bernskoetter et al. (p. 553) glimpse this coordination motif for… CONTINUE READING
