The nature of the chemical bond is of fundamental importance, and has always fascinated scientists. Metal–metal bonds are of particular interest, as bond orders greater than four are known and are of considerable current interest. The quest for the shortest metal–metal bond is strongly linked with the element chromium and has very recently been reinitiated after the first observation of a bond order greater than four for this metal in a stable compound. Soon afterwards, the shortest metal–metal… Expand
