Owing to their fascinating bonding nature, the metal-metal (M-M) multiple bonds in dinuclear metal complexes have been an interesting and vital research topic. During the past decade, our seminal and systematic approaches on the all-syn oligo-(/spl alpha/-pyridyl)amido ligands coordinated metal ions have successfully opened up a new chapter, extending this territory from dinuclear to linear oligonuclear metal complexes. Their unique features in structures and bonding characterization have been… CONTINUE READING
