Nan-Nan Liu, Jing Xu and Yi-Hong Ding Inverse sandwich complexes based on low-valent group 13 elements and cyclobutadiene: A theoretical investigation on E-C4H4-E (E = Al, Ga, In, Tl) International Journal of Quantum Chemistry 113
Group 13-based inverse sandwiches, E-L-E, are normally cationic species and thus require the presence of negative counterions for stability. Theoretical calculations lead to the design of a new type of electronically neutral inverse sandwiches, E-C4H4-E (E = Al, Ga, In, Tl). These stable new complexes are practical for synthesis, and can act as effective bilateral electron-pair donors.
