A series of ruthenium(II) mixed ligand complexes of the type [Ru(NH(3))(4)(L)](2+), where L=imidazo[4,5-f][1,10]phenanthroline (ip), 2-phenylimidazo[4,5-f][1,10]phenanthroline (pip), 2-(2-hydroxyphenyl)imidazo[4,5-f][1,10]phenanthroline (hpip), 4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthroline (dip), naphtha[2,3-a]dipyrido[3,2-h:2',3'-f]phenazine-5,18-dione (qdppz), 5,18-dihydroxynaphtho[2,3-a]dipyrido[3,2-H:2',3'-f]phenazine (hqdppz), have been isolated and characterized. The interaction of these complexes… CONTINUE READING
