3d element complexes of pentadentate bipyridine-pyridine-based ligand scaffolds: structures and photocatalytic activities


Bachmann, Cyril; Guttentag, Miguel; Spingler, Bernhard; Alberto, Roger (2013). 3d element complexes of pentadentate bipyridine-pyridine-based ligand scaffolds: structures and photocatalytic activities. Inorganic Chemistry, 52(10):6055-6061.

Abstract

The synthesis of the two penta-pyridyl type ligands pyridine-2,6-diylbis(dipyridin-2-ylmethanol) (PPy, 1) and bis-2,2''-bipyridine-6-yl(pyridine-2-yl)methanol (aPPy, 2) is described. Both ligands coordinate rapidly to the 3d element cations Mn(II), Fe(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), and Zn(II), thereby yielding complexes of the general composition [MBr(1)](+) and [MBr(2)](+), respectively. Further, the X-ray structures of selected complexes with ligands 1 and 2 are described. They show metal center dependent structural features and complexes with 2 exhibiting distinctly distorted octahedral geometries. Moreover, photocatalytic water reduction with [Co(II)Br(PPy)]Br (1c) and [Co(II)Br(aPPy)]Br (2c) as water reducing catalysts (WRC) was investigated. Both complexes showed catalytic activity in water when in presence of ascorbic acid as sacrificial electron donor and [Re(py)(bpy)(CO)3](+) (3) as photosensitizer (PS). Turnover numbers, TONs (H2/Co), up to 11,000 were achieved. Complex 2c was more active than 1c, whereas none of the other complexes showed any activity.

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.
