Aminotroponiminates as tunable, redox-active ligands: reversible single electron transfer and reductive dimerisation

Author affiliations

Abstract

Aminotroponiminates (atis) are shown to be redox-active ligands. Under strongly reducing conditions, the result of electron transfer can be controlled by the choice of the metal bound to the ati ligand. Either reversible electron transfer or a reductively induced dimerisation is observed. The latter reaction is (regio- and diastereo-) selective and chemically reversible.
