Abstract: The present work lies at the interface of frustrated Lewis pairs (FLP) chemistry and polynuclear complexes with alkyne-based bridging ligands. Suitable alkyne ligands with side-on coordination mode were synthesized in the coordination sphere of Tp* tungsten complexes. These alkyne ligands are substituted with phosphorus and carbon in α positions, which enables generation of positively charged carbenium or negatively charged carbanions at the alkyne.
