Ruthenium–carbon bond formation via cyclometallation of a nucleobase

Author affiliations

Abstract

The presence of a chelating tether attached to ethylguanine leads to the formation of a metal–carbon bond at C8 of the nucleobase when reacted with trans-[RuCl4(dmso)2], in contrast, more typical co-ordination at N7 is seen in the absence of the tether.
