BONDING AND PHOTOELECTRON SPECTRA OF MN(CO)5H AND MN(CO)5CH3 Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Ab initio SCF MO calculations of the electronic structure of Mn(CO)5H and Mn(CO)5CH3 predict small (< 0.4 eV) splitting between the metal e and b2 orbitals and lead to a new interpretation of their photoelectron spectra which does not necessitate invoking back-bonding to the -CH3 group in the case of Mn(CO)5CH3. 1972.
