Ru-TAP complexes with btz and pytz ligands: novel candidates as photooxidizing agents

Author affiliations

Abstract

Two ligands containing 1,2,3-triazole moieties 1 and 3 were easily prepared by a CuI-catalysed “click reaction” between commercially available (trimethylsilyl)alkynes and benzyl azide. These ligands were used in the synthesis of Ru(II) complexes with TAP ligands, i.e.[Ru(TAP)2btz]2+2 and [Ru(TAP)2pytz]2+4. The electrochemical and photophysical properties of these complexes were investigated. The data show that both complexes should behave as highly oxidizing agents under illumination. However, complex 4 displays more attractive photophysical properties than complex 2 and constitutes thus a Ru-TAP compound that can be easily derivatized for photodamaging biomolecules.
