Bonding of Dioxygen to Transition Metals

  • Michael B. Hall


In this chapter I would like to provide the reader with an introduction to the nature of the bond between molecular oxygen and transition metals. As examples of these systems, I will focus on models for cobalt, iron and manganese porphyrins. 1,2 Before discussing these fairly complicated metal systems, I would like to briefly review some basic bonding models for small molecules.
