The first row diatomic molecules N2 and CO have played central roles in developing fundamental models of electronic structure, and their interactions with transition metals have been widely investigated. By contrast, the valence isoelectronic molecules EX (E = group 13 element, X = group 17 element) have yet to be isolated under ambient conditions, either as the "free" molecule or as a simple metal complex. Here, we find that iodide abstraction from Cp*Fe(dppe)(GaI2) yields the stable complex...Expand abstract
