Abstract

Gerss and Jeitschko recently synthesized YCoC, which contains well-isolated infinite linear CoC3- chains, marked by a short Co-C distance. We have examined the bonding in this polymer. It has substantial π character, and that bonding could be strengthened by decreasing the electron count or oxidation. We think the chains should be magnetic.
