Cr-Cr Quintuple Bonds: Ligand Topology and Interplay Between Metal-Metal and Metal-Ligand Bonding.


Chromium-chromium quintuple bonds seem to be approaching the lower limit for their bond distances, and this computational density functional theory study tries to explore the geometrical and electronic factors that determine that distance and to find ways to fine-tune it via the ligand choice. While for monodentate ligands the Cr-Cr distance is predicted to… (More)
