Synthesis and structural characterisation of an yttrium-alkyl-alkylidene

By Polly Arnold, J.C. Green, J. McMaster and S.T. Liddle


The first structurally authenticated yttrium-alkyl-alkylidene is reported; structural, spectroscopic, and theoretical analyses show that whilst the yttrium-alkylidene bond is short, it possesses a bond order less than one and is comparable to the Y-C-alkyl single bond within the same molecule
