Abstract

original image

Ein gebogenes Dikupfer-Hydrid-Kation mit unterstützendem N-heterocyclischem Carbenligand weist im Festkörper einen Cu-H-Cu-Winkel von 122° auf. Dichtefunktionalrechnungen sprechen für eine offene Metall-Wasserstoff-Drei-Zentren-Wechselwirkung. Das Hydrid reagiert bereitwillig mit Methanol und Kohlendioxid, und durch Insertion von Phenylacetylen entsteht ein gem-Dikupfer-Vinylkomplex.
