Penta-coordinate dicarboxylate complexes
What is it about?
Describes a design methodology to prepare five coordinated metal complexes by using flexible dicarboxylates.
Why is it important?
Five coordinated complexes generally provides scope for studying structural non-rigidity. But to generate penta-coordinated rigid structures from flexible system is interesting; this study is on designing five coordinated complexes from flexible dicarboxylates attached to a rigid V shaped tether.
