How do CO-releasing molecules release CO? The DFT inspection of manganese-containing carbon-monoxide-releasing molecules (CO-RMs) leads to the discrimination of good CO releasers from bad ones. Natural bond orbital analysis of the Mn[BOND]CO bond reveals that the charge transfer is the major source of stabilization (see figure).
