New Organometallic Systems
The two unique properties of organometallic systems which make them of particular interest for use in the synthesis of molecular metals and related solid state materials are their ability (1) to support a wide variety of oxidation states and to undergo reversible one-electron transfer reactions, and (2) to exist as chemically independent stable free radicals. The materials discussed in this report are limited to systems in which there are either direct metal-carbon bonds (excluding metal cyanide complexes) or in which a transition metal complex acts as either a donor or acceptor with respect to an organic group i.e. as a charge transfer complex. Main group metal systems such as sodium doped polyacetylene or graphite are excluded from the discussion as they are included in the reports of other study groups.
