Probing the redox non-innocence of dinuclear, three-coordinate Co(II) nindigo complexes: not simply β-diketiminate variants

Abstract

Reduction of the dinuclear Co(II) nindigo complex dmp2Nin[Co(N{SiMe3}2)]2, with 1 or 2 equiv. of K0 (or KC8), affords the reduced complexes [dmp2Nin{Co(N{SiMe3}2)}2] and [dmp2Nin{Co(N{SiMe3}2)}2]2−, respectively. Inspection of these reduced species reveals ligand-centered reduction, with each cobalt ion retaining a formal 2+ oxidation state.
