      Abstract:

      The phosphinidene complexes   [Mn2(CO)8{μ-P(NiPr2)}]   and   [Co2(CO)4(μ-dppm){μ-P(NiPr2)}]   react with N-heterocyclic carbenes 1,3-bis(R)imidazol-2-ylidene   (R = tBu, adamantyl) to form   ‘abnormal’ carbene adducts, where the carbene is bound to the   phosphinidene fragment via C-4 instead of the expected   C-2.
