The Trigonal Prism in Coordination Chemistry.

Summary of "The Trigonal Prism in Coordination Chemistry."

Herein we analyze the accessibility of the trigonal-prismatic geometry to metal complexes with different electron configurations, as well as the ability of several hexadentate ligands to favor that coordination polyhedron. Our study combines i) a structural database analysis of the occurrence of the prismatic geometry throughout the transition-metal series, ii) a qualitative molecular orbital analysis of the distortions expected for a trigonal-prismatic geometry, and iii) a computational study of complexes of several transition-metal ions with different hexadentate ligands. Also the tendency of specific electron configurations to present a cis bond-stretch Jahn-Teller distortion is analyzed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Organic chemistry methodology that mimics the modular nature of various biosynthetic processes. It uses highly reliable and selective reactions designed to "click" i.e., rapidly join small modular units together in high yield, without offensive byproducts. In combination with COMBINATORIAL CHEMISTRY TECHNIQUES, it is used for the synthesis of new compounds and combinatorial libraries.

Neutral or negatively charged ligands bonded to metal cations or neutral atoms. The number of ligand atoms to which the metal center is directly bonded is the metal cation's coordination number, and this number is always greater than the regular valence or oxidation number of the metal. A coordination complex can be negative, neutral, or positively charged.

Chemistry dealing with the composition and preparation of agents having PHARMACOLOGIC ACTIONS or diagnostic use.

The branch of chemistry dealing with detection (qualitative) and determination (quantitative) of substances. (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed)

Field of chemistry pertaining to the study of inorganic compounds or ions and their interactions with biological ligands at the molecular level.
