A Springloaded Metal-Ligand Mesocate Allows Access to Trapped Intermediates of Self-Assembly.


A strained, "springloaded" Fe2L3 iminopyridine mesocate shows highly variable reactivity upon postassembly reaction with competitive diamines. The strained assembly is reactive toward transimination in minutes at ambient temperature and allows observation of kinetically trapped intermediates in the self-assembly pathway. When diamines are used that can only… (More)
