A strong π acceptor and a strong π donor—NO and O ligands, respectively—coordinated cis to the same metal atom are present in the complex 1. The NO stretching frequency of the linear WNO unit occurs at extremely low wavenumber (1433 cm−1). The red complex 1 forms by reduction of [WL(CO)2(NO)]+ to [WL(NO)(CO)(Me)] (L = heterocycle) followed by reaction with O2.
