Two-coordinate Fe⁰ and Co⁰ complexes supported by cyclic (alkyl)(amino)carbenes.


The CAAC [CAAC=cyclic (alkyl)(amino)carbene] family of carbene ligands have shown promise in stabilizing unusually low-coordination number transition-metal complexes in low formal oxidation states. Here we extend this narrative by demonstrating their utility in affording access to the first examples of two-coordinate formal Fe(0) and Co(0) [(CAAC)2M… (More)
