Theoretical analysis of bonding in N-heterocyclic carbene-rhodium complexes.

Abstract

The natural orbitals for chemical valence and the Ziegler-Rauk bond energy decomposition analysis were used to describe the donor/acceptor character of the N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHC)-metal bond in two groups of square-planar rhodium(I) complexes: (NHC)RhCl(cod) (1-X; cod = 1,5-cyclooctadiene) and (NHC)RhCl(CO)(2) (2-X), with a group X = H, Cl, NO(2), or… (More)
