The Taiji and Eight Trigrams Chemistry Philosophy of Chiral Iridium(III) Complexes with Triplex Stereogenic Centers

Abstract

Four novel chiral iridium(III) complexes with triplex stereogenic centers were synthesized by introducing the chiral carbon atoms into the cyclometalated and ancillary ligands, and separated into eight isomers, which are coincident with the old Chinese philosophy Eight Trigrams. The electron circular dichroism and circularly polarized luminescence spectra of four pair isomers show perfect mirror-images with a dissymmetry factor (glum factor) around 0.003.
