Synthesis and characterisation of fifteen-electron dihalo(carbonyl)tungsten(iii) complexes, Tp*WX2(CO) (X = Br, I) Academic Article uri icon


  • Open-shell, 15-electron, d3 dihalo(carbonyl)–WIII complexes, Tp*WX2(CO), are reported. These mononuclear, distorted octahedral complexes exhibit single ν(CO) IR bands and magnetic moments and isotropically shifted NMR spectra consistent with low-spin, double ground states.
