A series of bidentate salicylaldimine ligands was prepared and reacted with either [RuCl(µ-Cl)(p-cymene)]2, [RhCl(µ-Cl)(Cp*)]2 or [IrCl(µ-Cl)(Cp*)]2. All of the compounds were characterised using an array of spectroscopic and analytical techniques, namely, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, infrared (IR) spectroscopy and mass spectrometry… CONTINUE READING
