-Accepting properties of a chlorobismuthine ligand. Academic Article uri icon


  • BiZness as usual? Not exactly! The bismuth atom of the tridentate diphosphinobismuthine (o-(Ph(2)P)C(6)H(4))(2) BiCl behaves as a Z rather than L ligand when in the coordination sphere of late transition metals such as gold. The -acceptor behavior of Bi is supported by its disphenoid coordination geometry and theoretical studies, which show a AuBi interaction.
