π-Stacking and hydrogen bonding direct diastereoselectivity in one-pot syntheses of octahedral iron(II) complexes

Author affiliations

Abstract

One-pot reactions of FeCl2·4H2O and 2,2′-bipyridine-6-carbaldehyde with enantiopure chiral amines lead to octahedral [FeL2]2+ complexes, the diastereoselectivity of which depends on the nature of the amine; an interplay of intra-cation π-stacking and hydrogen bonding directs the diastereoselectivity.
