We report here on ruthenium alkenyl complexes 2 and 3 derived from 2,2'-bipyridine and their Re(CO)3X adducts 4a,b and 5. Detailed electrochemical studies on these complexes and spectroscopic characterization of their oxidized forms by IR, UV/vis/NIR, and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopies as well as quantum chemical studies reveal sizable(More)
Many applications in biotechnology and molecular biology rely on modified nucleotides. Here, we present an approach for the postsynthetic labelling of enzymatically synthesized vinyl-modified DNA by Diels-Alder reaction with inverse electron demand using a tetrazine. Labelling proceeds very efficiently and supersedes several known approaches.
Three complexes of the general formula trans/cis-[Ru((II))(dppme)(N-N)Cl2] {dppme is H2C=C(CH2PPh2)2 and N-N is 1,2-diaminocyclohexane (trans/cis-(1)) and 1-methyl-1,2-diaminopropane (trans-(2)} were obtained by reacting trans-[RuCl2(dppme)2] with an excess amount of corresponding diamine in CH2Cl2 as a solvent. The complexes were characterized by an(More)
The novel azoimine ligand, Ph-NH-N=C(COCH3)-NHPh(C≡CH) (H2L), was synthesized and its molecular structure was determined by X-ray crystallography. Catalytic hydration of the terminal acetylene of H2L in the presence of RuCl3·3H2O in ethanol at reflux temperature yielded a ketone (L1=Ph-N=N-C(COCH3)=N-Ph(COCH3) and an enol (L2=Ph-N=N-C(COCH3)=N-PhC(OH)=CH2)(More)
Four octahedral ruthenium(II) azoimine-quinoline complexes having the general molecular formula [Ru(II)(L-Y)(bpy)Cl](PF6) {L-Y=YC6H4N=NC(COCH3)=NC9H6N, Y=H (1), CH3 (2), Br (3), NO2 (4) and bpy=2,2'-bipyrdine} were synthesized. The azoimine-quinoline based ligands behave as NN'N″ tridentate donors and coordinated to ruthenium via azo-N', imine-N' and(More)
