A [16 + 1] valence electron configured rhodium aminyl radical complex could be synthesized and characterized in detail by pulse EPR spectroscopy and DFT calculations. The unpaired electron is delocalized over the metal center and two adjacent nitrogens. H-abstraction reactions from thiols and triethylsilane show that the spin density is predominantly localized on both nitrogens.
