Super Cyclopentadienyl (Cp) Complexes

Cyclopentadienyl Superligand Debuts. ‘The first synthesis of metal cyclopentadienyl (Cp) complexes substituted with five other metal cyclopentadienyl groups has been accomplished by K. Peter C. Vollhardt of the University of California, Berkeley, and coworkers. These “super Cp” complexes are of interest for fundamental chemical studies and are expected to function as substrates or ligands in magnetic and electronic materials and as metallic “minisurfaces” in catalysis.’
