Description
The classical distinction between transition metal and main group compounds has recently been challenged. This is due to the extraordinary properties and reactivity of low-valent and radical main group species, which chemists have begun to unveil. The development of reliable synthetic approaches to new types of low-valent main group compounds and the thorough understanding of their bonding situation, (electronic) structure, and reactivity is one of the major challenges of modern main group chemistry. Bismuth (Bi), a non-precious, non-toxic, heavy p-block element, offers unique properties for the use in synthesis and catalysis. Its large and diffuse atomic orbita...
