The monocation and monoanion of Re 2 (µ-Cl) 2 (µ-dppm) 2 Cl 4 (dppm = Ph 2 PCH 2 PPh 2 ). An unusual pair of complexes possessing metal–metal bond orders of 1.5 that differ in electronic configuration Academic Article uri icon


  • The one-electron oxidation and one-electron reduction of Re 2(μ-Cl)2(μ-dppm)2Cl4 (dppm = Ph2PCH2PPh2) can be accomplished using NOPF6 and cobaltocene as the oxidant and reductant, respectively, to give paramagnetic ions that possess metal-metal bond orders of 1.5.
