Blending the boundaries of main-group and transition metal chemistry
Single-Centre Ambiphile concepts
A new ligand class which takes advantage of the ambiphilic nature of monomeric low-valent p-block compounds: meet the Single Centre Ambiphiles!
We all know about chelating bis-phosphine ligands, but what about bis-phosphinidenes? Same number of phosphrous centres, with twice the number of lone pairs!
Fundamental Beryllium chemistry
The chemistry of the group 2 elements is extremely well studied, but beryllium has been left behind for the most part. Here we’re finding out what the smallest metal ion of the periodic table can do!
