Studies of Hydrido Transition Metal Cluster Complexes

  • Herbert D. Kaesz


The hydrido-metal cluster complexes comprise a small but growing group in the larger area of hydrido derivatives of the transition metals of which some 700 are now known. Metal hydrides have come to be recognized for their role as catalysts or intermediates in a number of reactions such as the hydroformylation and hydrogenation of olefins, the hydrogen-deuterium exchange and isomerization of hydrocarbons, and synthetic nitrogen fixation. Only about 25 hydrido-metal clusters are now known.
