© 2017 The Royal Society of Chemistry. The homoleptic sandwich compounds-Mo and W biscorroles-have afforded a novel platform for experimental studies of relativistic effects. A 200 mV difference in reduction potential and a remarkable 130 nm shift of a near-IR spectral feature have been identified as manifestations of relativistic effects on the properties of these complexes.
