Effects of π-bonding on stability and reactivity in CpCr(NO)] complexes
Recent synthetic and theoretical investigations of organometallic compounds containing the CpCr(NO) fragment have shown an interdependence of the electronic nature of ancillary ligands and the stability of a given Cr oxidation state. Understanding the correlation between ligand π-bonding properties and the nature of the metal-based frontier orbitals permits the rationalization of observed reactivity patterns, and the identification and preparation of new classes of target molecules.
