题目：POSITIVELY FUN: THE CHEMISTRY OF GERMANIUM CATIONS AND MULTIPLE BONDS
One of the most important advances in inorganic chemistry over the last 30 years was the discovery of stable (at rt under an inert atmosphere) multiply bonded species of the heavier main group elements. The spectroscopic and structural characterization of these unsaturated species has profoundly influenced our understanding of structure, bonding and reactivity. Multiply bonded compounds of the heavier main group elements have also proven to be powerful building blocks in organometallic/inorganic synthesis just as alkenes and alkynes are in organic synthesis. Even more exciting are the innovative applications of this chemistry that are now being explored.
In this lecture, I will present some of our research on the chemistry of digermenes (R2Ge=GeR2) and germenes (R2Ge=CR2) which has led to the discovery of some exciting and interesting molecules and has led to some interesting applications in materials science.
