Carbonyl complexes of calcium, silicon, and uranium have been prepared and exactly characterized within the last two years—sensational discoveries if one considers that previously, binary carbonyls of main group elements and actinides were only detected at very low temperatures as matrix‐isolated species. These exciting developments have again placed the spotlight on the rich and vital area of metal carbonyl chemistry.
