Though most of the aforementioned information involves homonuclear compounds, it is a basis for the chemistry of the heteronuclear complexes. Without a general understanding of how the individual species work, a venture into the mixed systems would be difficult. Consequently, many of the reactions that were attempted had either a precedent with a homonuclear complex, or had been done with some mixed-metal species. The lack of data on mixed-metal systems is due primarily to the fact that at present the research of these complexes is centered around synthetic efforts. Herein lies the efforts that I have undertaken, primarily synthetic, with goals of further application. The compounds that I have been investigating involve primarily transition metals of groups VIB and VIllB, employing primarily Mo and W from the group VIB triad and Ni from the VIIIB triad. Thus I have employed metals of the first, second and third row transition series, all involving various radii, masses and electronic configuration.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
