The n → π* interaction in metal complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

We report here, for the first time, the existence of n → π* interactions in transition metal complexes containing carbonyl ligands. This interaction has been observed to be surprisingly abundant and to stabilize precise molecular conformations that maximize the overlap between the donor and acceptor orbitals.
