Theoretical studies of H2bound to W(CO)3(PH3)2predict a stable η2complex with equal WH bonds (2.15 A) and a slightly lengthened (0.79 A) HH bond. The results are compared with recent experimental studies of the related W(CO)3(P-i-Pr3)2(H2) complex, and the nature of the bonding is discussed. © 1984.
