Sawhorse-type diruthenium tetracarbonyl complexes

Therrien, Bruno ; Süss-Fink, Georg

In: Coordination Chemistry Reviews, 2009, vol. 253, no. 21-22, p. 2639-2664

The review covers dinuclear ruthenium complexes that contain a Ru2(CO)4 backbone arranged in a typical sawhorse geometry as well as two three-electron bridges and two terminal two-electron ligands. Synthetic and structural aspects of these complexes are presented, and their catalytic and biological properties as well as their potential applications for nano-materials are... Plus
