Introduction

Mononuclear catalysts have been studied extensively and shown to catalyze various organic reactions. Bimetallic systems seem to behave differently from single metal systems as the second metal allows for cooperativity between the two metals. Recently, dirhodium paddlewheel complexes have exhibited improved catalytic activity compared to monorhodium catalysts for various organic reactions, suggesting the importance of the supporting metal atom. Despite the successes of mononuclear catalysts, there are very few examples involving bimetallic catalysts.
