The field of quadruply bonded dinuclear complexes in which two metal atoms are embraced by eight ligands has been considered mature. The bonding and electronic structures of these compounds have been well understood, ever since the discovery of the first dimetal species containing a quadruple bond, [Re2Cl8] 2 , over 40 years ago. The quest for thermally stable and isolable dinuclear complexes with higher bond orders is one aim of chemists in this field. From the synthetic point of view… Expand
