Abstract

The nitrosyl ligands in organotransition-metal nitrosyl complexes usually stay intact during chemical transformations of these complexes. However, our continuing study of the characteristic reactivity of Group 6 organometallic nitrosyl complexes has recently revealed a number of new product complexes which result from N-O bond cleavage of the nitrosyl groups in the reactants. The various reactions and reaction conditions during which these complexes undergo facile nitrosyl N-O bond dissociation are summarized, and mechanistic ideas as to why these bond cleavages occur are also presented.
