Abstract

original image

Star gazing: The six-coordinate organoniobium(V) compound [NBu4]2[NbO(C6F5)5] has been found to exhibit a pentagonal-pyramidal (PPY-6) structure, which is unprecedented in organotransition-metal chemistry (see picture: complex as viewed down the O–Nb axis; C in gray, O in red, F in yellow, and Nb in blue).
