Metal–Metal Bonding in Bridging Hydride and Alkyl Compounds

  • Gerard Parkin
Chapter
Part of the Structure and Bonding book series (STRUCTURE, volume 136)

Abstract

A theoretical analysis of the bonding in a series of dinuclear compounds that feature bridging hydride or alkyl ligands indicates that the direct metal–metal bond order is best predicted by an electron-counting procedure in which 3-center-2-electron M–H–M and M–R–M interactions are represented by the μ-LX “half-arrow” method. In contrast, an electron-counting procedure which apportions half of the valence electron of H or R to each metal center results in direct metal–metal bond orders that are not in accord with theory.

Keywords

Alkyl Bond order Hydride Metal Metal–metal bond 3-Center-2-electron interaction
