Gallium forms new relationships

Abstract:
Peter Roesky and colleagues at the Free University of Berlin, Germany, have successfully made two compounds containing a bond between gallium and two different alkaline earth metals, strontium and barium. Whilst theoretical studies had predicted these combinations, compounds containing a bond between these metals were previously unknown says Roesky. The researchers confirmed the structures of these novel compounds using x-ray crystallography.

New metal-to-metal bonds will interest researchers in many areas of the natural sciences, says Roesky. He added that similar compounds have found applications in biology, catalysis and nanotechnology.
