On the nature of the transition metal–main group metal bond: synthesis and theoretical calculations on iridium gallyl complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

The iridum–gallyl complex MeIr(PCy3)2(GaMe2)(Cl˙GaMe3) exhibits a short Ir–Ga bond length of 2.381(1)–2.389(2) Å. Theoretical calculations (ZORA BP86/TZ2P) support the presence of a Ir–Ga single bond but highlight a π orbital contribution.
