Heteroditopic ligand accommodating a fused phenanthroline and a schiff base cavity as molecular spacer in the study of electron and energy transfer.

The synthesis and characterisation of the heteroditopic ligand N,N'-bis(3,5-di-tert-butylsalicylidene)-5,6-(1,10-phenanthroline)diamine (DPSalH(2)) bearing a phenanthroline and a bis(salicylidene)diimine cavity are reported. This versatile ligand combines two of the most widely used ligands in coordination chemistry. Sequential metallation of the… CONTINUE READING
