Carbidos, Carbonyls, Carbynes and Carbenes: Reactivity of the Bridging C1 Ligand

Barnett, Harrison


The u-carbido ligand consists simply of a single carbon atom that acts as a bridging ligand between two transtion metal termini. The bonding of bimetallic u-carbido complexes may be described by one of four bonding scenarios that vary in the number (1, 2 or 3) of valence electrons required by each of the similar (Classes A and D) or disparate (Classes B and C) metal termini, so as to acquire satisfactory effective atomic numbers (16 or 18 valence electrons). As examples from each class have...[Show more]
