All-Metal Sandwich Is Now On The Menu
Sandwich complexes in which a metal center is bound by two arene ligands have captured the imagination of chemists ever since the first example, ferrocene, Fe(C5H5)2, was reported in 1951. Besides being cool molecules, a variety of these “metallocene” compounds of different shapes, sizes, and compositions have found applications in catalysis and as building blocks to make new chemicals and materials. A research team in China has now introduced a new item on the molecular . . .
