Stable mononuclear diamagnetic complexes generally contain 18 or 16 electrons The reactions of such complexes generally proceed through 18- or 16-electron intermediates Although many exceptions can be found, these are very useful practical rules for predicting structural and reactivity properties C.

0 0 Insertion-deinsertion FOS: Formal Oxidation State; CN: Coordination Number NVE: Number of valence electrons Association-Dissociation of Lewis acids (FOS) = 0; (CN)) = 1; (N)VE) = 0 Lewis acids are electron acceptors, e.g. BF3, AlX3, ZnX2 H H + BF3 W: H BF3 W H This shows that a metal complex may act as a Lewis base The resulting bonds are weak and these complexes are called adducts Association-Dissociation of Lewis bases (FOS) = 0; (CN)) = 1; (N)VE) = 2 A Lewis base is a neutral, 2e ligand L (CO, PR3, H2O, NH3, C2H4,)

in this case the metal is the Lewis acid HCo(CO)4 HCo(CO)3 + CO Crucial step in many ligand exchange reactions For 18-e complexes, only dissociation is possible For <18-e complexes both dissociation and association are possible but the more unsaturated a complex is, the less it will tend to dissociate a ligand Oxidative addition-reductive elimination (FOS) = 2; (CN)) = 2; (N)VE) = 2 Mn+ + X-Y M(n+2)+ X Y H Ph3P Cl Ir I CO PPh3 Vaskas compound
