Topological analysis of the metal-metal bond: A tutorial review

Topological analysis of the metal-metal bond: A tutorial review
This contribution explains how the topological methods of analysis of the electron density and related functions such as the electron localization function (ELF) and the electron localizability indicator (ELI-D) enable the theoretical characterization of various metal-metal (M–M) bonds (multiple M–M bonds, dative M–M bonds). Examples are taken in both bulk metals, alloys and molecular complexes. Metallic bonds as well as weak partially covalent M–M interactions, are described and characterized unambiguously combining AIM (atoms in molecules) and ELF/ELI-D topological analysis.
