Cover Picture: Triple Bond to Lead: Synthesis and Characterization of the Plumbylidyne Complex trans-[Br(PMe3)4Mo≡Pb-C6H3-2,6-Trip2] (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 17/2004)

43_17/2004The molybdenum–lead triple bond in the plumbylidyne complex shown is the first triple bond to a main-group element of the sixth period. The small Mo–Pb bond and a linear coordination to the Pb atom are evident in the structure. Quantum-chemical analysis with the electron localization function (reflected on the water) shows the electronic analogy between the plumbylidyne complex and Fischer carbene complexes. More about this can be found in the Communication by A. C. Filippou et al. on page 2243 ff.
