A review with $\sim$60 refs. Transition metal complexes contg. anion radical ligands display a strong tendency towards full coordinative satn. at the singly reduced ligand and towards substitutional activation of co-ligands at the metal center. Examples involving metal carbonyls show how both of these reactivities can be employed either sep. or in a combined fashion for electron transfer catalyzed substitution processes and for the construction of new polynuclear complexes with unusual properties. on SciFinder(R)
