When exposed to a liquid-nitrogen cooled surface, two benzene molecules would bond with chromium to create the organometallic sandwich compound di-benzene chromium.
The subsequent chapters deal with the the specifics of chirality as it applies to transition metals, including examples of: chirality at metal, half sandwich compounds, chirality in tetrahedral, alkyne complexes, chiral-at-metal complexes in organic synthesis, including Gladysz, Davies and Libeskind, chiral complexes, homogeneous catalysis by chiral complexes, chiral recognition in coordination compounds, chirality in supramolecular coordination compounds - the new field of chiral materials, including chiral metal conductors and chiral networks based on optically active bricks.
