The construction of a metal–metal quintuple bond has long been a challenge for chemists, since a large number of quadruple-bonded dinuclear complexes have been reported and their bonding and electronic structures extensively investigated and well understood. On the basis of theoretical work, many possible structures could be capable of accommodating a metal–metal quintuple bond, in contrast to the strict requirement of having twometal atoms embraced by eight ligands in a tetragonal geometry for… Expand
