Abstract

original image

Fluorine is unique! A synthesis method for polynuclear systems with bridging fluorido ligands has been developed. The method is based on anchoring and protection of the fluorido ligand by initial coordination to a robust metal center (e.g., CrIII) and subsequent use of the robust fluoride complex for construction of more complicated polynuclear structures.
