Synthesis and Characterization of the Metal(I) Dimers [Ar'MMAr']: Comparisons with Quintuple-Bonded [Ar'CrCrAr']
Cobalt together: The iron and cobalt analogues of the quintuple-bonded chromium species [Ar'CrCrAr'] (Ar' = C6H3-2,6-(2,6-iPr2C6H3)2) are described and their structures investigated by crystallography, magnetic studies, and density functional calculations. Metal-η6-aryl interactions in [Ar'FeFeAr'] and [Ar'CoCoAr'] are stronger than those detected in [Ar'CrCrAr'], whereas metal-metal bonding is much weaker.
