Ligand-centred reactivity in diiminepyridine complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

The diiminepyridine ligand, made famous by Brookhart and Gibson a decade ago through its use in the first iron-containing olefin polymerization catalyst, also displays an amazing variety of ligand-centred reactions, including electron transfer, alkylation, dimerization and deprotonation. The present Perspective summarizes these reactions and also speculates on the links between ligand- and metal-centred reactivity.
