The unusual suspects: Depending on co-ligands Ln and the effects of substituents (R), the well-known triazenides [N(NR)2] may act as EPR detectable coordinated triazenyl ligands, [N(NR)2]. (see scheme). They are thus new non-innocent ligands and are related to the hitherto unused non-innocent nitrogen dioxide ligand, [NO2]..
