Check out Shirin's latest paper focusing on the electronics of an important rhodium olefin intermediate. Using a combination of Rh K-edge XAS, DFT calculations, and NMR data - she and Addison Desnoyer from the Love group demonstrate that some of these complexes are really rhodocyclopropane complexes, which is crucial in understanding their reactivity.
