A number of binuclear and polynuclear complexes of rhodium(I) with bridging nitrogen heterocycles are known. X-ray crystal structure analysis of some of the complexes has established the bridging nature of the heterocycles. The proximity of the metal atoms is found to considerably influence the electronic spectra of the complexes. Oxidative addition reactions of these compounds are yet to be properly investigated. Some of these compounds are efficient hydrogenation and hydroformylation catalysts.
