The coordination chemistry of copper(I) carbonyls and cyano complexes is reviewed. Primary attention is focused on structural chemistry, including coordination behavior, bridging modes, network formation, flexible coordination number, and reversible ligand binding. Additional coverage of infrared spectroscopy and orbital interactions in carbonyl and cyanide bonding and the photophysical behavior of metal cyano complexes is also included.
