Abstract

Taming of the wild anions: Highly labile naphthalene complexes of formally negative-valent later transition metals have been obtained in the form of [Co(η4-C10H8) (η4-cod)] - (see picture; cod = 1,5-cyclooctadiene) and [Co(η4- C10H8)2]-. The latter is the first structurally authenticated homoleptic bis (naphthalene) metal anion for any d-block element and promises to be a particularly reactive synthon for the "naked" atomic cobalt anion.
