Multiple bonds between transition-metal atoms have fascinated chemists for 50 years, ever since F. Albert Cotton’s group at MIT discovered a quadruple bond in a diruthenium complex. Synthesizing these multiply bonded complexes between like metals is now common. But such complexes involving two different metals remain rare. A research team led by Connie C. Lu of the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities, has taken . . .
