Tinlanthanoid donor–acceptor bonds

Author affiliations


Reactions of a lithium tris(2-pyridyl)stannate with lanthanoid metal organic compounds resulted in the formation of novel donor–acceptor complexes, containing a low valent tinlanthanoid bond; DFT calculations reveal that this bond exhibits some covalent character.
