Mono- and Dicationic 2,2’-bipyridine Complexes of Germanium(II) and Tin(II)

Abstract

We present the first systematic study of 2,2’-bipyridine complexes of E(II) cationic acceptors (E = Ge, Sn). The complexes were comprehensively characterized by spectroscopic crystallographic methods to yield complexes of ECl1+ and E2+. Computational DFT methods were also employed to survey the bonding in the cations, along with an examination of their molecular orbitals (MOs).
