Abstract

1,3-Dimetallaallenes 1 or carbyne complexes 2 are the simplest examples of compounds in which different transition metal complex fragments or units of main group elements are terminally bound to Cn bridges. Polymers such as 3 with C4 bridges which link d8 ML2 building blocks are of particular interest as materials with novel properties.
