Redox non-innoence permits catalytic nitrene carbonylation by (dadi)Ti=NAd (Ad = adamantyl)

Description: This article describes (dadi)Ti(X/L) species that manifest redox non-innocence (RNI), including a rare instance in which carbon monoxide does not affect redox activity at the metal, and does not bind, thus permitting its use as a substrate in catalysis.

Multireference Character for 4d Transition Metal-Containing Molecules

Description: This article proposes new criteria, namely T₁ ≥ 0.045, D₁ ≥ 0.120, and %TAE ≥ 10%, as a gauge for 4d transition metal-containing molecules to predic the possible need to employ multireference (MR) wave function-based methods to describe energetic and spectroscopic properties.
