Photochromic organometallics with a dithienylethene (DTE) Bridge, [Y-C[triple bond]C-DTE-C[triple bond]C-Y] (Y={MCp*(dppe)}): photoswitchable molecular wire (M=Fe) versus dual photo- and electrochromism (M=Ru).

Abstract

Dinuclear acetylide-type complexes bridged by a photochromic dithienylethene unit (DTE), [Y-C[triple bond]C-DTE-C[triple bond]C-Y] 1 (Y={MCp*(dppe)}; Cp*=pentamethylcyclopentadienyl, M=Fe (1(Fe)), Ru (1(Ru))), have been prepared, and their wirelike and switching behavior, as well as their oxidation chemistry has been investigated. The DTE complexes 1… (More)
