The preparation and characterisation of the tungsten-tungsten quadruply bonded, 3,6-dioxypyridazine bridged complex [(tBuCO2)3W2]2(μ-H2C4N2O2) and its single electron oxidised radical cation are reported and, when compared with related bridged dimolybdenum complexes, reveal a different mechanism of electronic coupling from that seen in related oxalate bridged systems.
