This thesis describes the synthesis and characterization of metal bis(phosphinoyl)methanide and methanediide complexes. Chapter 1 describes the synthesis of bis(phosphinoyl)methane with two different coordination site. Chapter 2 describes the synthesis of main-group metals iminophosphinoyl)(thiophosphinoyl)methanediide complex derived from magnesium, aluminium and tin(II). Chapter 3 describes the synthesis of transition metal (iminophosphinoyl)(thiophosphinoyl)methanide and methanediide complexes derived from zirconium and the hafnium. Group 11 metal (iminophosphinoyl)(thiophosphinoyl)methanediide complexes have been presented as well.
