History, Classification, and Nomenclature
Metal π-complexes possess a relatively new type of direct carbon-to-metal bonding that cannot be designated as one of the classic ionic, σ-, or π-bonds. It is now known that a large number of both molecules and ions such as monoand diolefins, polyenes, arenes, cyclopentadienyl ions, tropylium ions, and π-allylicions can form metal π-complexes with transition metal atoms or ions.
