A Stable Janus bis(maloNHC) and Its Zwitterionic Coinage Metal Complexes
Chemistry and Biochemistry
The first stable dianionic Janus-type bis(maloNHC) was isolated and characterized. Details on the chemistry of this biscarbene with respect to its ability to support catalytically relevant metal complexes are provided. The molecular structures of two dinuclear gold and silver complexes were determined by X-ray crystallography.
