Chapter 2, “Organometallic and Coordination Complexes,” details procedures for largely mononuclear metal complexes, with central elements ranging across the periodic table and with a wide variety of ligand types. These include compounds derived by substituting the aqua ligands in MoO2Br2(H2O)2, oxorhenium(V) complexes for oxygen atom transfer catalysis, e.g., ReO(hoz)2Cl, facile routes to a variety of dienyl complexes of Ru(II), such as the “open ruthenocene” Ru(η5-C5H5Me2)2, a useful oxygen sensor [Ru(4,7-Ph2phen)3]Cl2, copper(II) and nickel(II) complexes of a chelating diiminopyrrolizinide ligand derived from tetracyanoethylene, Pt(II) complexes with either tridentate amines or propanone oxime as ligands, and several complexes involving easily replaceable ligands that are useful synthetic intermediates, e.g., Ag(O3SCF3)(PPh2Me),[Cd2(THF)5][BF4]4, and {UO2Cl2(THF)2}2.
