Abstract

CoCo loco! Ligand-bridged dimers (see picture) with the shortest known Co-Co interactions are the first amidinato and guanidinato cobalt(I) complexes. The nature of the interactions has been probed by magnetic and theoretical investigations, and has been shown to be multiconfigurational. Preliminary reactivity studies of the complexes have also been carried out.
