2007_13/2007Acetylide Addition to Bridging Vinyliminium Ligands in Dinuclear Complexes (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 13/2007)

The cover picture shows the crystal structures of three diiron complexes with bridging hydrocarbyl ligands of increasing size and complexity: from the bridging aminocarbyne (at the back) through to the bridging vinyliminium (in the middle) to the allylidene complex (in the front). The complexes are the result of subsequent additions of alkynes and acetylides that take place at the bridging unit. For each step, the bridging coordination provides activation and also regio- and stereocontrol of the addition reactions. Thus, the nature and conformation of the growing bridging organic frame can be largely predicted and properly designed. Details are discussed in the article by V. Zanotti et al. on p. 1799 ff.
