Organometallic Chemistry: Ligands in the NMR Spectrum

How many signals from the CO ligands do you expect to see in the 13C NMR spectrum of each of these complexes? Explain.
a) [V(CO)6]
b) cis-[Rh(Br)(CO)2(PPh3)]
c) [Fe2(CO)4(Cp)2]
d) [Mn(CO)5(CH3)]

Solution Preview

a) One signal since all CO molecules are equivalent.
b) Two signals since the two CO ...
