Abstract

Reactions of (dien)M2+ (M=Pt, Pd) with cytosine (CH) lead to mixtures of linkage isomers with N3 and N1 bonded metal entities as well as N3,N1 bridged species, as demonstrated by 1H NMR spectroscopy. The N3 linkage isomer is preferred over the N1 linkage isomer throughout the pH range studied (2.5–9), but the ratio does not parallel the equilibrium constant between the aminooxo tautomer (I) (proton at N1) and the aminooxo tautomer (II) (proton at N3), which has been estimated to be close to 1000 in solution. Rather, the minor tautomer (II) is complexed to a much higher extent. This finding is potentially significant for any metal–nucleobase interaction in that it suggests that metal complexes of rare tautomers may be formed more readily than generally assumed. X-ray data of four (CHN3) complexes as well as of the first example of a (CN1,N3) bridged compound are reported.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
