Carbon Ligands

Organometallic compounds are not specifically discussed in this section. No carbonyl chemistry of scandium and yttrium has been reported yet and there is also no cyanide chemistry of these two elements although thiocyanato complexes of scandium Sc NCS 6 3 bonded through nitrogen are known. 8 The important developments involving scandium or yttrium with carbon have involved the fullerene derivatives of these elements. There have been some scandium carbide systems prepared but these will be...
