Irreversible but noncovalent Ru(II)-pyridine bond: its use for the formation of [2]-catenanes.


The reaction between ligand 1, which consists of two terminal pyridines attached to a central 1,10-phenanthroline (phen), and the complex Ru(phen)2(CH3CN)2(PF6)2 has been studied. A new ruthenium containing metallamacrocycle has been obtained and fully characterized. Despite the relatively poor yield for the cyclization process involving the ruthenium… (More)
