Abstract

It is generally considered that metal-carbene carbon bonds in carbene complexes for cyclopropanation should be double-bonded; however, the theoretical and FT-IR analyses revealed that the cobalt-carbene carbon bond of the 3-oxobutylideneaminato or the salen-cobalt-carbene complexes was characterized as a single bond.
