Paramagnetic metal complexes of diamido donor ligands

Author affiliations


Recently, considerable attention has been given to the use of multi-dentate amido ligands in the coordination chemistry of a range of transition metals as a means of accessing novel structural motifs and unusual reactivity. Presented herein is a perspective on transition and f-block metal complexes containing diamido donor ligands of the general form [NDN]2− (D = NR, O, PR). Particular focus is given to paramagnetic metals, which have in general been studied much less than their diamagnetic counterparts despite their potential to exhibit unique structures and diverse reactivity patterns, in addition to their magnetic properties.
